2021 Trentino D.O.C Müller Thurgau ‘Terrazze della Luna’

$29.99

‘Terrazze della Luna’

Amongst the many hybrid wine types (crossings) made by Dr Hermann Müller from the Swiss Canton of Thurgau in the second half of the 19th century, the one between Rhine Riesling and Madeleine Royale called Müller Thurgau is certainly the most successful in terms of finesse, elegance and modernity. It does however have one fundamental constraint, it only adapts and performs at its best in cool to temperate areas, which in Italy can only be found in a few Alpine valleys.

Luckily, the estates of Cavit provides the best place to grow such a grape. This Müller Thurgau from Cavit is straw yellow, with hints of greenish light. Delicate fruity bouquet reminiscent of lime and cedar with floral notes of elder and a spicy hint of sage on the nose.

Upon drinking, you will find this white drop to be crisp, fruity and with a long taste.

‘Terrazze della Luna’ is super well matched to fish dishes; but just as excellent as an Aperitivo with some quality cheeses.

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

Mmmmm….A delicious little crisp white from Cavit that I love to simply enjoy amongst company and a well-assembled cheese platter.

 

However, outside of Aperitivo hour, the fresh fruity notes of this Müller Thurgau Trentino D.O.C from Cavit (apple, lime and fresh wood) make it a superb accompaniment to salty crunch of Crispy Roasted Pork Belly (in a milk base), fried freshwater fish and even chicken tacos. Simple French fries, or a light soup can also work well with this North Italian white.

 

If you prefer your white wines after dinner, great! This wine is known to also work with fresh fruit sorbets, and desserts such as custard tart, fruit flan or orange syrup cake.

 

What I love about this wine is that it’s versatile to so many contexts and remains so expressive in it’s fruit offering to the palate, no matter the pairing.

 

Optimal Serving Temp: 8-10 Degrees Celsius

 

The Winery

Cavit (Italian acronym of Cantina Viticoltori del Trentino – Trentino Grape Growers’ Cellar) is a cooperative group uniting 10 Cellars of Trentino with overall 4,500 associated grape growers. Today Cavit gathers, inspects and selects the wine produced in the associated cellars, supervising each phase: from refining to bottling, all within respect of the environment.

 

Cavit collaborates with the renowned Agricultural Institute of San Michele all’Adige (Edmund Mach Foundation), which trains the most qualified technicians, as well as with other national oenological research centres. The result is a quality which is being constantly praised in Italy and abroad.

 

Cavit’s history starts in 1950, when some vine-growers, aware of the uniqueness of their land and eager to valorise their products, entered into partnership, establishing a Consortium of associated grape growers, a first draft of Cavit.

 

The Consortium was born to help the associated wine cellars and promote the “culture” of quality wine throughout the region, supporting the vine-growers throughout each phase.

 

In 1957, the technical function was joined by the commercial function: the Consortium acquired a cellar for the increasing needs of its associates.

 

In 1964, today’s premises of Ravina di Trento was built, and then expanded starting in 1977 until it reached its 80,000 m2 of today.
Since then, Cavit has become the reference point for Trentino’s wine production.
