Muller Thurgau

Muller Thurgau is the second most widely planted grape in Germany, yielding about 30 percent more fruit than Riesling and ripening earlier, usually in late September. While it requires less sun and makes few demands on the climate, it does need more rain than Riesling and well as good drainage. 

Muller Thurgau wines are usually light with a flowery bouquet and less acidity than Rieslings, often carrying a hint of Muscat in its flavor. 

Muller Thurgau pairs well with all seafood dishes, pasta or risotto with crustaceans and fish, and grilled or broiled fish and with hot dogs slathered with spicy brown mustard and sauerkraut. 

Cheeses that go well with Muller Thurgau include Cheddar and Montasio.
