2020 Essence of Müller-Thurgau
Clear pale straw in the glass, with aromas of fresh-cut green apple, pear, and orange blossom, with hints of fresh linen and hard candies. Lightly sweet on the palate, with a burst of brightness in the middle that makes this dessert wine surprisingly balanced. Tree fruit flavors are accompanied by melon, honey, lemonade, key lime pie, cinnamon toast, and apple Jolly Rancher with just a hint of vanilla.
This wine was created by freezing a portion of the unfermented juice, partially thawing it to extract intense flavors and aroma, then blending with the finished wine. This method produces a wine with powerful fruit and bright acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve chilled with a fruit and cheese plate, a cheese course, fruit crumble, cobbler, or pie.
