2023 Zilzie Estate Merlot



Tasting Notes

A sensory treat, the Zilzie Estate Merlot delights with its aromatic blend of spice, blackcurrant, dark cherry, and plum. Bursting with juicy black cherries, it carries a lingering hint of dark chocolate and finishes smoothly with soft, silky tannins.


Mid to deep crimson.


Blackcurrant, dark cherry, and plum, complemented by aromatic spices and toasted oak.


Plum, spice and blackberry flavours are balanced with a velvety texture and soft tannins.

Food Match

Pair the Zilzie Estate Merlot with either herb-crusted rack of lamb with a red wine reduction or Mediterranean stuffed capsicums with couscous and feta for a delightful dining experience.

Winemaker Notes

Selected parcels of Merlot were fermented in rotary and static fermenters. Post-fermentation, the wine spent seven to ten days on skins before a gentle pressing. It was then matured on French oak for three to six months, prior to blending and bottling. The resulting wine displays excellent depth of colour, richness, and a complex array of flavours.
