Overview

Winemaking

The fruit was harvested at night when the temperature was coolest to retain maximum fruit flavour. The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel with aromatic yeast strains with a small portion of fermented on skins to add intensity and zest. The wine was then aged on yeast lees for two months to add roundness and retain freshness. The wine was bottled early to retain fresh fruit characters

Vintage

The Vintage 2019 growing season was one of the driest on record. Controlled winter watering and careful monitoring of vine stress levels was key to a successful crop. Temperatures tended to be cooler in Spring and early Summer which caused a slower start to the season, as temperatures began to rise in late Jan early Feb ripening moved along a little quicker and the team were grateful the vines had sufficient canopies to protect the fruit through to maturity. The reds from this vintage show excellent depth of colour and fabulous tannins, whilst the whites display a rich array of aromatics and bright fresh fruit flavours.

The Fibonacci sequence reflects the growth spirals found in nature, just like the new tendrils on a grape vine that unravel each spring. The notion being ‘what you start with determines the end result’ which is of course the foundation of all great wines. The right combination of soil and climate with grow quality grapes, the best grapes will then give you a fabulous wine.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

After nearly three decades of growing grapes for some of Australia’s best known wine brands, the Zilzie winery was built in 1999 with the first vintage released under the Zilzie name in 2000.

The increasingly popular and distinctive Selection 23 range was introduced in 2004, while 2008 saw the re-release of our Bulloak range.

2009 has seen the culmination of many years dedication to selective vineyard sourcing deliver the “REGIONAL COLLECTION” of Zilzie wines. We’ve combed Australia’s best known wine regions, specifically targeting the varieties they excel at, for exceptional grape parcels to produce these wines.

We’ve come a long way in 10 years, with our winery tripling in capacity, and our range growing from the humble beginnings of four varieties, to now include consumer favourites such as Pinot Grigio, Moscato and Rosé.

It’s not all about size, Zilzie is also recognised for its exceptional quality, having won 27 trophies in its short history and is the only winery from our region rated 4.5 stars by James Halliday in his 2009 Wine Companion.
