Variety: Gruner Veltliner
The wines made by the Malat family are so absolutely fresh and current generation Michael Malat so energetic, you’d think they were still in the honeymoon phase. It turns out that they’ve been making wine in the region of Kremstal for ten generations, dating way back to 1722. The wines seemingly get better with every vintage and the wines have been flying under the radar for far too long. Their vines are located on the south bank of the Danube where making wines like Gruner Veltliner and the family specialty of ‘Sekt’ sparkling wines is more than ideal.
Even for its price point, this is a pretty serious Gruner. This is coming from a blend of different sites on the banks of the Danube, Furth being the name of the small village from which the vines are sourced. The wine is aged for three months in very large used barrels. This is the ultimate secret weapon food pairing, versatile just about any savory food.
