Based in the Murray Darling region, the Zilzie winemaking team take regular trips to the Barossa Valley, inspecting the health of vineyards and munching on the fruit as it grows on the vine to isolate parcels of ultra fine Barossa Shiraz. Harvests from choice vineyards are separately crushed and vinified. Ferments are pumped over three times daily to extract good colour and the softest tannins. Upon completion, batches are gently pressed before the free run and pressings are transferred to a selection of French oak barriques for a year's maturation, before assembling into a wine exhibiting excellent depth of colour, richness of palate structure and complexity of flavour.
