Malat’s Brut Reserve 2010 in Vinogger.com

Malat’s Brut Reserve 2010 was featured in Vinogger.com‘s @vinogger “Unique Sparkling Wines” blog post from December 29th, 2014. Melanie Ogren, author of Vinogger, does a great job of featuring sparkling wines from regions usually unheralded and we are delighted by this nod to Malat’s Sekt. A little known fact – sparkling wine is about 20% of Malat’s wine production! Their Traditional Method Sekt is hand riddled and produced with no dosage. Its the perfect wine for sabering every night of the week!
