Mallaluka Shiraz Sangiovese 2018
'Sangiovese from Gundagai, shiraz from the home farm of Mallaluka in the Yass Plains, smooshed together in a cool-warm region slow dance. Hello Sam Leyshon. Good stuff from this ever-evolving producer.
Healthy perfume of warmed berries, pie crust, something like floral botanicals and dried herbs too. Really nice start. Medium weight, slurpy textured, soft tannins, just ripe red berry fruit flavours, nice dose of spice and a long, smooth finish. Righteous drinking. Has a freshness inherent but delivers lots of flavour. Absolute joy to drink. Effortless too. Go forth.'
