Műller-Thurgau, the 2nd most planted grape in Germany, is also grown in neighbor countries, and in spots around the world, like Oregon! I love what Anne Amie does with Műller-Thurgau. Smell and taste fresh green apples, honeysuckle, lemon zest, peach skins, maybe a little tangerine, white pepper and a rocky/earthy character on the finish, giving it an old-world, food-wine edge. Low alcohol (12.9?), bright acidity, no oak, killer price. Great brunch wine as it sings with salads, eggs, fresh and cured fish dishes.
I’ve become well acquainted with Anne Amie wines from tasting them frequently with their California broker. They are consistently delicious, graceful, honest expressions of the grape and place (Yamhill Carlton, a sub-AVA of Willamette Valley.) Alcohols tend to run in the 12-13%, making them particularly good on the brunch & dinner table. And what values! Hard to beat the quality for price, especially their Pinot Noirs when you look at their neighbors’ prices.
