Good stuff from this ever-evolving producer.
About The Wine
Here's a fun-loving easy-drinking, sloshy, slurpy red from all-round good dude, Sam Leyshon at Mallaluka.
Shiraz and Sangiovese aren't classic dance partners but they get along pretty well in this wine. Warm climate Sangiovese from Gundagai meets cool-climate spicy Shiraz from the Canberra District.
It's medium bodied, supple and silky smooth to drink. Not a complex 'thinking wine' but guaranteed to be one of the first bottles finished at your next BBQ.
