“Historic vineyard, über-classic wine. This is perfection!”

Malat has been farming the vineyard of “Höhlgraben” since breaking ground in 1722. Just let that sink in for a moment: 300 years of learning and mastering a single site! Today’s 2021 release is one of the finest bottlings of $40 Grüner one can buy. It’s replete with smoky citrus, green mango, baby arugula, white pepper, Asian pear, creamy green apple, and damp white flowers. Compared to “Furth,” this is a slightly bigger, more concentrated Grüner with richer textures on the mid-palate. For that reason, it can shine with a main course. Enjoy now and over the next five years.
