Winemaker Notes

Aromatic, full and fresh. Once you’ve tasted this intense Alpine varietal, you’ll want to share it with the wine lovers in your life. Pale straw-yellow color with an intense, reasonably aromatic nose showing notes of nutmeg, nettle and white peach. Fresh, full, agreeable, lengthy palate.

Very good as an aperitif, also goes well with seafood risotto, grilled fish and fried food in general.

Tasting Panel

Pungent aromas of summer apricot and peach stimulate the senses. The creamy texture is a mouth-filling dream with sweet almonds and white floral notes. The expected minerality melds with stone fruit and accents the lean acidity. Baked orange rinds find a saline finish.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Kettmeir Müller Thurgau is a beautiful wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine draws its nuances from the outstanding Alto Adige growing region. Pair its aromas and flavors of earth, hard candy, and citrus peel with steamed flounder in light soy, scallion sauce. (Tasted: April 26, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Since 1919, Kettmeir has been at the heart of winemaking in Alto Adige, the lush Alpine region we call home. Drawing on generations of careful craftsmanship and passion for flavor, we produce Alto Adige’s most precious, hidden treasures: exceptional wines that pair perfectly with the foods and friends that fill life with flavor. Kettmeir is located in the hills of Alto Adige, a unique and beautiful region in the Alpine north of Italy. In this superb territory are ideal conditions for grape cultivation: a range of soil types, altitudes, and temperatures. The fully modernized winery continues its commitment to the region it calls home and to caring for the vines which form the essence of its prestigious wines.

A mountainous northern Italian region heavily influenced by German culture, Trentino-Alto Adige is actually made up of two separate but similar regions: Alto Adige and Trentino.

Trentino, the southern half, is primarily Italian-speaking and largely responsible for the production of non-native, international grapes. There is a significant quantity of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Merlot produced. But Trentino's native and most unique red variety, Teroldego, while still rare, is gaining popularity. It produces a deeply colored red wine rich in wild blackberry, herb, coffee and cocoa.

The rugged terrain of German-speaking Alto Adige (also referred to as Südtirol) focuses on small-scale viticulture, with great value placed on local varieties—though international varieties have been widely planted since the 1800s. Sheltered by the Alps from harsh northerly winds, many of the best vineyards are at extreme altitude but on steep slopes to increase sunlight exposure.

Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, strawberry-kissed, Schiava, in addition to some Pinot Nero.

The primary white grapes are Pinot grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon blanc, Müller Thurgau. These tend to be bright and refreshing with crisp acidity and just the right amount of texture. Some of the highest quality Pinot grigio in Italy is made here.

Müller-Thurgau is a white grape variety created by Hermann Müller in the Swiss Canton of Thurgau in 1882. He crossed Riesling with the table grape, Madeleine Royale, following an ambition to make a delightful drinking wine from an easier-to-grow vine than Riesling. When done right, Müller-Thurgau is a full-bodied, floral white with a refreshing, crisp quality. Somm Secret—Worldwide, Müller-Thurgau is one of the most widely planted of the new breed of grapes created since the 19th century.
