Food Match

To accompany Selection 23 Merlot, consider indulging in either slow-cooked beef stew with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots or spinach and ricotta stuffed pasta shells with marinara sauce.

Winemaker Notes

Selected premium parcels of Merlot grapes fermented in both rotary and static fermenters. Following fermentation on skins for 7 to 10 days, gentle pressing of the grapes occurred. Then, the wine matured on French oak for 3 to 6 months before the process of blending and bottling. This process yields a wine with excellent depth of colour, richness, and complexity.

About the Range

The Selection 23 range of wines pays tribute to the original block of land where our story first started in the early 1900s. Don and Ethel Forbes took a leap of faith on a 600-acre patch nestled by the Murray River’s sweeping bend. Today, Zilzie Winery stands on Selection 23, commemorating our journey from humble beginnings to successive generations shaping their unique paths. The label art beautifully captures the aerial topography of our cherished home. Click here to watch and learn more about the Selection 23 range.
