  • Zilzie Estate Merlot 2016

    2016

    Zilzie Estate Merlot

    Tasting Notes

    The earlier than expected 2016 harvest delivered fruit with excellent varietal characters resulting in wine with an ideal balance of sugar, acid, colour and flavour. 
    The mild weather conditions during spring were followed by warmer than usual February temperatures. The odd burst of extreme heat resulted in an early start to vintage, bringing forward the ripening of some varietals and shortening the harvest time. 

    Colour

    Medium red with purple hues.

    Aroma

    Cherry, pomegranate and raspberry with sweet toasty oak.

    Palate

    Dark berries, cherry and spice with soft  tannins and a subtle oak finish.

    Food Match

    Beef Wellington or roasted vegetable lasagne.

    Winemaker Notes

    Premium parcels of Merlot fruit were fermented in rotary and static fermenters. Following fermentation on skins for seven to ten days, they were gently pressed. The wine was matured on French oak for 6 months before blending and bottling, the resulting wine has excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity.
