After three decades of growing grapes for some of Australia's most esteemed labels, Zilzie began bottling the pick of the crop under their own own. Many years experience means that they know how to produce great wines while keeping them as accessible and easy to enjoy as possible, it's a delicate balancing act. Zilzie make a salient expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from fruit grown to Coonawarra's rich red iron soils, as distinctive for it's vigorous perfumes as it is for it's generousity of flavour and integration of French oak with stylish tannins.
The team at Zilzie take a world's best practice approach to winemaking, while the winery may host the latest technology, they still believe that it's the quality of fruit and the human element which produces a truly memorable wine. Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from choice Coonawarra vineyards, each separately harvested to a schedule based on full physiological ripeness, the individual parcels are separately handled. Batches are vinified in static and rotary fermenters to achieve optimal extraction of colour, good varietal definition and ripe tannins. Upon completion, batches are drained and pressed, followed by transfer into a selection of French oak barriques for a year's maturation.
TASTING NOTES
Deep red with purple tinges. Vibrant Coonawarra nose of blackberry, cassis and plum characters, dark fruits and a touch of mint combined with sweet vanillin oak tones. A generous palate showing layers of rich dark berry fruit, complex and expressive, superbly balanced with a firm structure and soft, velvety, fine grained tannins over subtle oak. Ideally served with char grilled beef and rich jus.
