"Luminous straw-green. Green apple, pear nectar and white peach combine with spearmint and thyme on the captivating nose. Then rich, ripe and spicy, with noteworthy clarity and cut thanks to vibrant harmonious acidity. An outstanding Müller Thurgau that finishes long and crisp. One of the best vintages of this wine ever, and much better than the green, Sauvignon-like 2016."

The 2017 Müller Thurgau Palai is at first slightly shut down or reduced on the nose. Give the wine a few minutes in the glass, and it opens to fresh and brilliant floral intensity. White rose and jasmine segue to tropical fruit and candied lemon. Indeed, the aromas are open and generous. Italian Müller Thurgau finds its natural home in the Valle di Cembra in Trentino and the Valle Isarco in neighboring Alto Adige. Some 40,000 bottles were made.
Pojer SandriView all from Pojer Sandri
Perched on the steep Eastern side of the canyon-like valley of the Adige river in the Trento region, Pojer e Sandri is one of the most remarkable wineries of the Trento region.
The dynamic team of Mario Pojer and Fiorentino Sandri have owned the estate since 1975, when Fiorentino as the landowner teamed up with Mario who had just graduated from enological school. Instead of producing wines in the international style as the rest of the world was doing, they set out to protect and revive the many local grapes of the area and produce wines which were almost forgotten. Their respect of the environment and traditions along with their outgoing personalities and hospitality soon set them on a class of their own. Today, they are widely respected as one of the most unique and trend-setting wineries in Italy.
