Mallaluka Aligote 2021

$36

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.
