Zilzie Wines Platinum Edition Arinto 2020
"... This is a terrific rendition. Pressings fermented in older barrels, free-run juice into stainless steel, then partial transfer to barrel and left on lees to build texture. Spicy, juicy pears, lemon juice, and grated Granny Smith apples. Excellent length, with fine, chalky acidity and grapefruit pith phenolics. It's crisp, very dry and deliciously good."

Zilzie Wines Platinum Edition Arinto 2021
"Pressings fermented in small seasoned barrels, the free-run juice fermented in stainless steel first, then to barrel for maturation. A mild summer in the Riverland has delivered a beauty of a wine. Arinto, the Portuguese white grape, brings forth its lemon citrus tang in spades here with pear, spice and apple. Acidity is keen, delicious and super-dry."
Zilzie Wines Platinum Edition Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
"Fermented warm on skins for 8 days, fermented in stainless steel and matured in French oak. Retains McLaren Vale generosity while also pursuing a more aromatic and fine-aged style. Aromas of black fruits, dusty cacao, spice and a hint of eucalyptus. Fabulous oak-tannin balance on display here, a light touch brings some classy fruit forward to be fully enjoyed."
Zilzie Wines Platinum Edition Barossa Grenache 2020
"Matured in large-format French oak (50% new). A luscious wine! Big, rich and generous in black and red fruits, musk, confection and a wealth of spice, ably supported by well-composed tannins and vanillin oak. Rolls smoothly over the tongue to a deceptively long, strong sweet finish."
