Zilzie's collection of wines are always honest, with some lovely juicy flavours and easy appeal.

This moscato is everything you'd want in a fun and frisky sweet wine too. It's juicy, it's ripe and it's packed full of musky delicious fruit.

Drink well chilled for breakfast (bacon and moscato works fyi).

How's it taste?

Fresh, vibrant, lifted nose of candied lemon drops, turkish delight, quince paste. Fresh vibrant very peachy and rose water but clean and crisp thanks to fresh zippy acid.

How was it made?

A mild spring followed by a classic warm and dry summer lead to outstanding quality across all varieties in Vintage 2018. These mild and dry conditions, whilst shaping exceptional fruit, saw a slight reduction in volume crushed than in previous years.

The fruit was harvested at night when the temperature was coolest to retain maximum fruit flavour and freshness. The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel with an aromatic yeast. This wine was bottled early to retain the natural carbon dioxide resulting in a refreshing spritz. The natural sweetness is balanced with zesty acidity and vibrant fruit flavours.

Who made it?

In the words of Aretha Franklin, this family owned winery is all about R.E.S.P.E.C.T. The Forbes family respect the land by producing a carbon neutral wine, Bulloak, and cutting their water usage by 35% since 2005. They also give a respectful nod to their Scottish ancestors who originally name the property Zilzie over 100 years ago. Even the design of the ‘Z’ on the label is based on the shape of the Murray River as it snakes around the property. The current Forbes family members have farmed the land for 30 years. They supplied fruit to some of Australia’s largest wine companies before deciding to do their own thing in 1999. Today, they have 572 hectares of vines and produce around 100,000 cases per year. Winemaker Mark Zeppel and his team make an array of wines using varietals like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. They dedicate themselves to using the best parcels of fruit from various regions to make consistently good wines at affordable prices. The styles are fun, fruit-driven and express the grape variety without swamping it with oak.
