How's it taste?

Fruit forward style with subtle savouriness from the nose, strawberry and secondary flavours of cherry and pepper notes express throughout the glass. Great to enjoy on the couch with pizza.

How was it made?

The fruit was harvested in the cool of night to retain maximum fruit flavour. The juice was cool fermented on skins then pressed into stainless steel to optimise colour and flavour.  The wine was further matured on a light level of French oak to add depth and complexity prior to blending and bottling.

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.
