Mallaluka Aligote 2021
Sam Leyshon has well and truly taken Mallaluka into great places, while still maintaining the vision of his dad, and producing fine, extremely high value wines. There is a genuineness and integrity to these wines, that reflect where they come from.
Notes from the Leyshon family:
King Valley fruit. Fermented using indigenous yeasts on active Chardonnay lees. 30% in seasoned French oak barriques, 70% in stainless steel. Kept on lees for 9 months, then blended before bottling. No fining.
Textural yet clean, sea spray and walnut oil warmth. As with all our wines, we like a ‘handmade’ expression about them. Nothing too polished but not lacking in class. Drink with some pungent cheese and unseasoned flat breads.
Region: King Valley
