2017 Müller? Müller Thurgau

2017 Müller? Müller Thurgau

25.00

Those of you who grew up in the 1980’s will surely get this pop culture reference. When the opportunity arose to source some old vine Müller Thurgau also from the early 1980’s I couldn’t resist. I have been impressed with many of the Müller Thurgau wines from Austria and so this is an unabashed nod to those wines, albeit with an Oregon twist.
