Place: Riverland, SA & Hilltops, NSW
Variety: Mataro, Shiraz
Mallaluka is a family affair in the Canberra district of NSW. These estate-grown wines are made by second generation vigneron Sam Leyshon who has most recently learnt to ply his trade assisting Bryan Martin and Tim Kirk at Clonakilla. These are modern wines that reflect the changing face of this exciting region.
Riverland Mataro and Hilltops Shiraz in equal parts. Savoury, juicy, herbaceous and slightly tart with enough ripeness of fruit to balance any greenness. Can definitely be chilled, or in between room temperature and fridge.
