Ballandean Estate Malvasia 2018

A funny story about Malvasia...
The excitement was growing in the Ballandean Estate office and winery with the anticipated release of this wine well before it was in bottle. I'd call up Leeanne and introduce myself as Mal Vasia from Stanthorpe Smash Repairs and drag out some ridiculous conversation about her husband Mario's bashed up car - Mario is a car freak so Leeanne took it all very seriously and went along hook line and sinker - til she realised it was me and a few choice words were exclaimed. You had to be there I suppose...
This is Ballandean Estate's twelfth alternate variety and the first Malvasia to be released on the Granite Belt. Less than 200 cases of the variety were made Australia wide in 2018 with Ballandean Estate contributing 90 of them.
