Müller-Thurgau

 

Common synonyms: Müller, Müllerka, Müllerovo, Müller-Thurgaurebe, Riesling-Sylvaner, Rivaner, Rizanec, Rizlingszilvani, Rizvanac bijeli

Parentage of the grape: Muller-Thurgau is a cross between Riesling and Madeleine Royale.

History of the grape: This variety was developed by Dr. Hermann Muller in 1882. When naming the new grape, he added the name of the Swiss canton in which he was born to his own surname. Dr. Muller’s goal had been to create a variety with the finesse of Riesling and the reliability and early ripening of Silvaner, which is what he thought he was using. Genetic testing later proved that the second parent of Muller-Thurgau was in fact a lowly table grape called Madeleine Royale, which was the result of an unknown crossing in 1845. Decades later, after Germany’s wine industry was devastated by World War II, growers finally embraced the variety, which does indeed ripen very early and yields as much as twice what Riesling does.

Müller-Thurgau on Snooth

  • OK, this one got me too- at first... and I've even travelled through Moravia... although, not exactly at leisure.  The best way of putting it is that this is special primeur consisting of run-off juice, sugar and a little time for fermenting.  It is unclarified and more like "grape beer".So... it is not, I think, a grape, but rather, a drink.  I...

  • I had a few Wente wines back in the '70s and early '80s but don't ... drank a lot of Sylvaner and Muller Thurgau from what seemed to me then like all over Central Europe, but since then the most sylvaner I've had has been Alsatian.If offered that Wente bottle, I certainly would pop it and taste-test it though. I like those treasure-hunt finds,... Read More

  • Sounds like a nice memory of your visit.In Germany and particularly Austria ... say, an Orangeina.  ;-)Muller Thurgau is extremely common over there, and I've drunk it on and off for decades, even over here in Japan. Frankly, I prefer riesling, but I like MT better than sylvaner (which I do occasionally drink), so it does have its place for me... Read More

  • Abbazia di Novacella in northern Italy (aka Austria) makes a good MT that isn't too hard to find. It is on the dry side though.http://www.snooth.com/wine/abbazia-di-novacella-muller-thurgau-2013/(And mixing sparkling water, club soda or seltzer with wine is called a Spritzer. This is a very common drink all over the world - though I, like EMark,... Read More

  • Sharon, welcome to the Snooth Forum. It's unfortunate that you have not ... is that wine made from the Muller Thurgau grape is just not that popular in the U.S.  I'm guessing that you have checked local retail stores with no success.  At the Wine Searcher web site they list two online purveyors in the U.S.  If you are allowed to accept deliver...

I am not a wine drinker but I found this to be very enjoyable to drink.   What is a wine I can find locally that is comparable in taste to th... Read More
