2020 Mallaluka Vermentino
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.
The fruit for this new wine comes from the Riverland region of South Australia, Ricca Terra vineyards. Completely de-stemmed and fermented on skins in one tonne open top vats using indigenous yeasts. Hand plunged twice daily, pressed off into stainless steel vats, then settled for 3 months. No fining or filtration used.
Almond, green olive and the sea. Conservative autumn fruits, subtle yet persistent texture for an ‘amber’ wine this young.
Where: Riverland, SA
How: Vermentino is one of our favourite wines to drink. Salty and citrusy, drink it with herby fish
