Description: the Müller Thurgau vine is a cross between Renano Riesling and Madeleine Royale. It was created at the end of the 19th century by the botanist Hermann Müller, a native of Thurgau in Geisenheim (Ger- many), the canton after which it is named. It has a straw-yellow colour with greenish reflections and a delicate, slightly aromatic scent that is reminiscent of tropical fruits like pineapple, banana, and ripe apricot, with hints of Mediterranean spices. Fine tasting, elegant and harmonious, it is pleasantly aromatic and decidedly fresh.
Food pairings: excellent as an aperitif, with modern appetizers, finger food, light quiches, or fish mousse canapés. Perfect with grilled or boiled fish mains, fresh cheeses such as mozzarella and ricotta, and produce from the vegetable patch such as cherry tomatoes. To be served at a temperature of 10-12 °C.
Conservation: to be kept in fresh places at a temperature of 12-16 °C, far from light, avoid to keep it long time in refrigerator.
