Item Description

Müller-Thurgau was created in Switzerland in the 19th century as a hardy, early-ripening grape for table wines. It is now the most widely grown grape in Germany. Borell-Diehl makes it in the classic style: fresh, crisp, limey, and ridiculously easy to drink. A modest 12% alcohol with great acids and no oak (of course), it beats Pinot Grigio at its own game, offering great refreshment in a dry style but also the unique fruitiness of a cool climate aromatic grape. Did we mention it’s in a LITER? 33% more wine!

No garden party or picnic is complete without two or three of these in the cooler.

All wines at Borell-Diehl are sustainably dry-farmed with no herbicides or pesticides, and grown within 5km of Hainfeld in the Pfalz.

Borell-diehlThe timbered home that houses this family-owned estate in Hainfeld was built in 1619, but the estate in its current form is far more recent than that. In 1990 Annette Borell and Thomas Diehl married and created Borell-Diehl by joining their families' three wineries into one. Starting with a total of 5 hectares, they have since expanded to 35 hectares of vineyards, all within 5km of Hainfeld, about 1/2 hour drive from Deidesheim. Their holdings are a complex geology of loess, limestone, red sandstone, with deposits of minerally muschelkalk (limestone) in some sites.

Annette and Thomas' oldest son George is now poised to take over leadership at the estate. Having staged at important addresses like Rebholz (Pfalz) Wittmann (Rheinhessen), and Von Volxem (Saar), as well as an internship in New Zealand in 2016, he will continue the winery's focus on quality wines of extraordinary value. All the wines David Bowler imports are from estate-owned vineyards where rigorous crop thinning and hand-harvesting are the norm. In addition, no systemic pesticides or herbicides are used and there is no irrigation in the vineyards.

Borell-Diehl is our cool, under-the-radar source for bargain Müller-Thurgau, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay... and recently Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir!

Crisp and smooth

Julius

Stone dry and smooth

"I love a good sauvignon blanc but this less know grape is far beyond. There is not "bite" or "citrusy" tartness in my mind (like some NZ whites). Great minerality, smooth, light and incredibly crisp. I've introduced it to 6 people over the past month and they all agreed they'd never had a white like this. And it's so affordable! I buy it by the case."
