2018

Zilzie Estate Shiraz

$12.00

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

Crimson red with vibrant hues.

Aroma

Complex spice with dark berry, and a soft floral aroma.

Palate

Dark berry fruit flavours, a hint of anise with toasty vanillin oak and soft supple tannins.

Food Match

Slow roasted lamb, stuffed bell peppers or a selection of cheeses.

Winemaker Notes

Selected parcels of Shiraz fruit were crushed and co-fermented with Viognier. Following fermentation on skins for seven to ten days, the ferments were membrane pressed and matured on French oak before blending and bottling. The resulting wine has excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity.
