Müller-Thurgau was created with the goal of producing a grape variety that would ripen earlier and be more resistant to diseases than Riesling, while still retaining some of the aromatic characteristics of Riesling
Varietal Origin: Müller-Thurgau is a white grape variety that was created by Swiss grape breeder Dr. Hermann Müller in the late 19th century. It is a cross between Riesling and Madeleine Royale, and was first cultivated in the canton of Thurgau in Switzerland. Müller-Thurgau is also known by other names, such as Rivaner in Germany, where it is widely grown.
Typical Taste Profile: Müller-Thurgau wines are known for their aromatic and floral character, with flavors of ripe apples, pears, and citrus. They are often off-dry or semi-sweet, with moderate acidity and a light to medium body. Müller-Thurgau wines are typically easy-drinking and approachable, with a pleasant and refreshing taste profile.
Regional Styles: Müller-Thurgau is grown in many wine regions around the world, including Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, New Zealand, and other countries. In Germany, it is one of the most widely grown grape varieties and is used to produce a range of styles, from dry to off-dry and sweet. In Switzerland, it is still cultivated in the canton of Thurgau, where it originated. In other regions, Müller-Thurgau is often used as a blending grape or for making sparkling wines.
