Premium Pinot Noir fruit parcels underwent a meticulous process that began with carefully crushing and cold soaking. These selected parcels then experienced fermentation on skins within stainless sweep arm fermenters, a practice that lasted for a period of five to seven days. Following this, the winemaking process employed a membrane pressing technique, ensuring the extraction of valuable components. The next step encompassed a period of maturation on French oak, a process spanning approximately 3 to 4 months. The resulting wine is a harmonious blend, meticulously created through skilful blending before it was prepared for bottling.

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.
