2020 Mallaluka Aligoté

King Valley, Victoria

Aligote fruit sourced from The King Valley in Victoria due to smoke taint around Canberra. Whole bunch pressed to 60% yield, and filtered. The juice was then shipped to Mallaluka winery where it fermented with indigenous yeasts, 40% in one year old French Oak Barriques and the rest in stainless steel. Settled for 3 months in the fermentation vessels, then racked off lees before bottling. Fleshy pineapples, textural, a slight edge and great salinity that sucks the cheeks in and makes this one perfect to sit alongside meals. Incredible value.

About the maker

After learning a few tricks of the trade working alongside (Bryan Martin - Ravensworth) Sam Leyshon is another one of those shining beacons coming out of the Canberra area.

Second generation vigneron, Sam is one of those guys that just seems to be going against each wine trend, but making a name in doing so. The operation is small and premium, but the wines are priced more than reasonably for the quality of the fruit and winemaking skills on offer. The long and slow ripening of the cool climate produces these grapes that develop full flavour while maintaining their acidity and translates into tasty and fresh wines.
