Nibiru | Müller Thurgau
A tropical vacation of island fruits
If you were to blindly smell this wine, you might guess Sauvignon Blanc. It has all this tropical gooseberry, passionfruit, and fresh cut grass. It’s like an island vacation with ripe papaya, peach, and mandarin orange. The tropical aromas are addicting. Highly drinkable, thirst quenching goodness!
Kamptal, Austria (one of the most northern regions of Austria)
Great with lighter vegetables like asparagus (one of the only wines that pairs well with asparagus!), roasted cauliflower, salads, and light pasta dishes. For more of an adventure, try with grilled fish with Cajun spice or Asian chili sauce, mango salsa, or sushi.
Located in Thürneustift, a village in the northern most part of Kamptal, Josef Schenter and Julia Nather farm and craft honest wines with a story to tell. According to ancient Sumerian scripts, Nibiru is the name of a planet that crosses our solar system every 3,600 years, traveling in the opposite direction than the rest of our planets. The name symbolizes and reflects their philosophy, their willfulness and determination to follow their own direction. When taking over Josef’s 3rd generation family winery in 2015 the two introduced true holistic and biodynamic farming with the ultimate goal to convert their vineyards into wild habitats with vines grown throughout. The predominately old vines tended to by Nibiru in these cooler reaches of the Kamptal create wines with exceptional liveliness and structure, from Riesling and skin contact Müller Thurgau, to Pét-Nat and Blauer Portugieser chilled reds.
