Alto Adige Müller Thurgau 2012 DOC – Kellerei St. Michael, Appiano/Eppan (BZ), Italy
St. Michael’s Winery, located along the prestigious Weinstraße (Wine Road) in the town of Appiano/Eppan in Italy’s northernmost region of the Trentino Alto Adige/South Tyrol, was selected the Bel Paese’s “Winery of the Year for 2000” by the Italian wine publication I Vini d’Italia. And, for good reason. This winery produces and markets three distinct lines — Sanct Valentin, Cru and Classic — totaling 34 different blends and varietals. It is within the Classic line that we uncork our Alto Adige Müller Thurgau 2012 DOC.
Crystal-clear with a deep, green-yellow color, this wine has a unique aromatic fullness. The bouquet is delicate hay and mild nutmeg fragrances. Charming on the palate, this varietal is uncomplicated in its simple style.
Fresh tasting and easy to drink, Alto Adige Müller Thurgau 2012 DOC pairs well with a variety of dishes, especially freshwater fish.
Best served chilled between 8-10 °C.
