The very good Coonawarra vintage allowed Zilzie to purchase very good wine/grapes and use French barrels for maturation. The wine is medium-bodied, blackcurrant cabernet fruit matched with a splash of merlot. It's balanced, ready to enjoy now.

How's it taste?
Blackcurrant, spicy oak and plum dominate the nose. The palate has classic flavours of mint and blackcurrant with a rounded plum finish. Toasty tannins with lingering oak notes through to the finish.
How was it made?
Fruit was selected from premium Coonawarra vineyards, crushed and underwent fermentation for two weeks on skins. Following fermentation the must was gently pressed before being transferred
to oak. The wine was matured in French oak before blending and bottling. The resulting wine has excellent depth with integrated oak tannins.

The 2018 Coonawarra vintage generally delivered superb conditions, leading to fruit of outstanding quality being harvested. The winter and spring rainfall leading into the 2018 season was excellent at 20% above long-term averages. The winter was cold delivering a good dormancy. The yields were moderate and the slow cool ripening was very even,
delivering fruit with fine tannins and strong varietal flavours.
