Wine of the week: Anne Amie Cuvee A Muller-Thurgau 2015

Anne Amie Muller-ThurgauThe Anne Amie Muller-Thurgau is an interesting and enjoyable white wine from a top Oregon producer

Small, interesting producer? Check.

Weird grape? Check.

Something no focus group could ever love? Check.

In other words, the Anne Amie Cuvee A Muller-Thurgau ($15, sample, 12.7%), a white wine from Oregon made with a German grape that is seldom grown much anymore. What’s not to enjoy?

The Anne Amie Muller-Thurgau offers white spice, a little lime fruit and the acidity that goes with it, some green apple, a freshness and minerality that I didn’t expect, and maybe a touch of sweetness if you swallow a certain way.

In this, it’s a shrimp and shellfish wine if you’re tired of sauvignon blanc, a roast chicken wine if you’re tired of chardonnay, and a porch wine for the first nice afternoon in the spring.

My only complaint? The tasting notes say it pairs with something called a kati roll, and I’m not nearly hip and with it enough to know what that is.
