Endrizzi Muller Thurgau 2012

Endrizzi Muller Thurgau 2012

Sku: 134506

Specializing in mono-varietal wines of classic and local origin, the Endrizzi family makes all of their wines naturally, rejecting of he usage of pesticides and chemical cleaners for the winery. The 100% Müller Thurgau, lightly perfumed and crisp, gives a sense of the temperature swing from day to night in this area, making it an exceptionally fresh wine enjoyable as an aperitif or with first courses.

I didn’t think our Alto Adige section would be complete without including a Müller-Thurgau and I find Endrizzi’s to be one of the truest and most gratifying expressions of the grape. Although some Müller-Thurgaus are bland at best, Endrizzi’s is interesting both aromatically and on the palate. It’s slightly floral, with good acidity that doesn’t come off too citrusy. A few months on the lees lends it a richer texture that many other Müller-Thurgaus, making it work very well with food. Endrizzi is not certified organic, but winemaker Paolo Endrici works naturally, keeping pests in check with specially designed birdhouses that attract the right predatory birds, and insect hormones that confuse pests and prevent them from reproducing.

Other text
Winemaker Paolo Endrici is a fourth generation winemaker who employs a thorough approach towards sustainability, planting nutrient-rich cover crops between the vines. No chemical treatments are employed on the farmed land, and, as mentioned above, confusion sexuelle is used instead of pesticides. In addition, the fermenting must is protected by a blanket of nitrogen, obviating the need for added sulfites. The grapes are grown in chalky, porphyry-rich soils 1,600 feet above sea level. The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats.

Food pairing
The Endrizzi Müller-Thurgau 2012 makes a terrific, expressive winter aperitif, a dry, sleek, and clean expression of the grape, that is neither too light nor too heavy. A lift of almost saline minerality also makes it a perfect accompaniment to simply prepared white, flaky fish. And for those who might be looking to avoid sulfites, note that Endrizzi’s wines are among the lowest in sulfites to be found.
