2014 Malat Gruner Veltliner
"The Malat Winery, located on the south bank of the Danube River in the Kremstal districtus of Austria, has been producing exceptional wines since 1722. Ninth generation winemaker Michael has continued this tradition, taking over the fifty hectare estate from his pioneering father Gerald in 2008. Michael studied horticulture in Vienna and developed his mastery of viticulture internationally. Although known for their excellence in sparkling wine, with Gerald producing the first Austrian estate-bottled Sekt in 1976, the Malat Winery crafts noteworthy wines of all types.
"While others may wane, the Malat Winery continues its pursuit of perfection and evolves with the times while keeping an eye on its rich past. Vineyard sites are hand worked, with organic and sustainable practices integral to the winemaking process. A modern boutique hotel opened in 2012, offering guest rooms and dining situated directly upon the beautiful vineyards of this historic and prestigious estate." - Distributor's Notes
