Toblino Muller Thurgau, Germany

This was part of a recent Luke's Case and we had a few bottles left over. The organic Cantina di Toblino was founded in 1960 in the Trentino Alto-Adige region of northern Italy. The vines and winery are situated next to Lake Toblino where the gentle breezes and cooling microclimate make for excellent growing conditions. There are currently 500 members who contribute to the co op and the company itself farms approximately 40 hectares locally. The wines enjoy DOC Trentino status and in 1999 a new winery was built next to the original building to further improve quality and production. Bred in 1882 in Geisenheim by the Swiss botanist Hermann Müller, from the canton of Thurgau. For a long time, it was believed that Riesling and Sylvaner were the parent varities, but eventually, genetic research provided clarity. Müller-Thurgau wines often have sweet peach aromas with low acid and a range of fruity flavours. They are almost always best consumed young, with the notable exception of those in northern Italy. (where this wine comes from!) where the combination of old vines and steep, elevated vineyards makes for more serious expressions with greater ageing potential. A hint of sweetness backed up by those stone fruit flavours.
