2020 Mallaluka Mataro
Mallaluka Wines is, by any measure, a boutique operation. We are committed to producing premium, handmade wines that reflect the very best of the cool climate, Canberra District. Family owned and run, we drink what we make, the rest is for you.
Riverland fruit from Ricca Terra vineyards in South Australia. 30% whole bunches with macerated fruit on top. This wine came from a far away region so we used commercial yeast to be safe. Came up an absolute treat! Perfect chemistry and sugars. A touch spicy from the stems but very much overpowered by the seductively ripe, Candied Riverland hot fruit. No fining or filtration and minimal use of SO2.
Where: Riverland, SA
How: What a wine. Great with game meat like duck, or equally good with a beef stew
