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.

  • Stoneboat Vineyards White Blend Chorus 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This eclectic number is a doppelganger of the California Conundrum (Wagner Family) white and is just as good - if you like adding a good dollop of extra citrus acidity. With 6 grapes in the blend it is surprising how dominant the Pinot Gris and Viognier seem to be. But then I don't actually know the percentage break-out which I suspect is actua... Read More

  • I'm a bachelor again this weekend.  So, in order to make sure I did not starve, I went over to Trader Joe's, this morning, to see what I could pick up that would be (1) tasty and (2) easy.  (I ended up with a refrigerated lasagna and a Greek olive medley.)I also figured what's the harm in checking out the wine selection, and before I knew it 3 o...

  • Schlink Haus White Blend Auslese 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Not much going on here on the nose, just a touch of herb and citrus pith. In the mouth, this is very simple with a nice balance between sugar and acid that supports easy citrus fruit flavors. The acidity pops nicely on the back end and drives the brief finish. 80pts Read More

    Snoothrank:

    This light yellow wine is made from a grape that is a cross between (Riesling x Silvaner) X Muller-thurgau It had a petrol, fruity noise and a soft current and nutmeg taste with no tannins and not overly sweet but it is considered a sweet wine.. It was a delightful wine to have with the Schnitzel, pomme frites and red cabbage meal. Read More
