Award-Winning Winemaker John & Sam Leyshon

Mallaluka Wines is, by any measure, a boutique operation. They are committed to producing premium, handmade wines that reflect the very best of the cool climate in the Canberra District. The long, slow ripening period of a cool climate produces grapes that develop full flavour while maintaining their acidity.

The tannins are also softer than those of warmer climates, resulting in fruit where all the necessary characteristics for making premium wine are in balance. They then employ the most well-tested and successful methods of boutique winemaking in Australia today.

These include minimum use of chemicals, open vat fermentation, basket pressing, maturation in small oak barrels (predominantly French oak barriques), no fining or filtering, and bottling under screw cap seals. The result is wines of premium quality that are approachable at a young age, but have the potential to mature gracefully for many years in the bottle.

Please note, Mallaluka Wines do not have a cellar door. Wine tastings are generally by appointment only, groups of 6 or more.
