Zilzie Mystery Export Merlot 2018 (6 x 750mL) SEA

WINEMAKING

Premium parcels of Merlot fruit were fermented in rotary and static fermenters. Following fermentation on skins for seven to ten days, they were gently pressed. The wine was matured in French oak for 6 months before blending and bottling, the resulting wine has excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity.

VINTAGE

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. Our vineyard and winemaking teams have worked passionately throughout Vintage 2018 to craft amazing wines with great colour, and flavour intensity that will enrich life’s everyday moments.
