Such a pleasure to drink, has enough body and flavour but also this refreshing nature. Very well done.
About the Wine
Cabernet Franc is the 'parent' grape of many varieties we all know and love - like Cabernet Sauvignon, for example. Here, Sam puts this variety on show in a magical way.
Taking fruits from the Mallaluka vineyard, they then see 100% carbonic maceration - the result is a gorgeously soft, fresh and juicy wine that keeps the punchy aromatics Cab Franc is known for.
An absolute cracker, it's safe to say just one glass won't be enough - this bad boy will keep you coming back for more.
Mallaluka is a family affair in the Canberra district of NSW.
These estate-grown wines are made by second generation vigneron Sam Leyshon who has most recently learnt to ply his trade assisting Bryan Martin and Tim Kirk at Clonakilla.
These are modern wines that reflect the changing face of this exciting region. He makes wines with a wild side, with minimal intervention and are insane value for money.
With Sam in the driver's seat, Mallaluka is one of the rising stars of the region, bringing a unique light and shade to the Canberra district.
