Müller-Thurgau was propagated in the late 1800s by a Swiss botanist who saw a need for an early ripening grape with lower acidity and abundant yields. Crossing riesling and the Swiss grape Chasselas, he created Müller-Thurgau, what is now the most-planted grape variety in German and a favorite of wine consumers.
The growing season
It is difficult to believe we were blessed with three back-to-back years of optimum growing conditions for our Müller-Thurgau. The 2016 vintage was as good, if not better, than the previous year, yielding higher tonnage than both 2014 and 2015.
To bring out the charming aroma and fruit flavor of this grape, we used a cool and slow fermentation for our finished wine. Such is the Henry Estate approach for all of our white wines, which has served us well for the style of wines we like to offer.
The wine has delicate floral aromas of apple blossom and peach. Chilled, it is a great aperitif that enhances melon, fruit and cheeses.
