2017 Zilzie Selection 23 Shiraz

Regular price $12.99 Sale

WINEMAKING
Shiraz grapes from selected vineyards were fermented in
temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks for around 7-10
days, to maximise colour and flavour extraction. After primary
fermentation, the wines were membrane pressed and underwent
malolactic fermentation on French oak, before blending and final
filtration.

VINTAGE
The wet spring followed by a mild summer lead to a later and
compressed harvest for all varieties this year. Our vineyard and
winemaking teams worked tirelessly during vintage 2017 to ensure
all varieties were harvested at optimal flavour development,
producing elegant wines with lower alcohol levels which we are
sure will delight our consumers.
