2020 Schloss Mühlenhof 'Das ist Keine Orange' Muller Thurgau
Like Magritte and his famous Pipe that Was Not a Pipe? Young Nicholas Michel, winemaker at the natural winery of Schloss Mühlenhoff, wants you to know that this Orange Wine is Not and Orange Wine. What is it? Mostly Müller-Thurgau, 15% Riesling, 10% Pinot Blanc, and homeopathic doses of Pinot Gris, Sankt Laurent, and Muskateller, all harvested together and macerated for two months on their skins. Bruised apple, clove-spice, grapefruit pith, and all sorts of mineral zip. As fun an option for card-carrying orange wine lovers as it is for people who don't know they love it yet -- because, well, Das ist keine Orange!!!
