Mallaluka Syrah 2021

$40

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:

Fruit in equal parts from Gundagai, Hilltops and Canberra District regions. 30% whole bunch fermentation using indigenous yeasts. Basket pressed into seasoned French oak barriques for 10 months maturation. Blended before bottling. No fining or filtration.

Silky, floral, delicate with a persistent back bone that drives this wine with a long finishing palate. Let it open up to allow the classic darker fruits to show off. Hold some back for a few years if you can. You’ll be rewarded with some cellar time for sure.
