Richland (NSW) 2018 Merlot

This is an instant stunner with its plum, dark berry fruit appeal but still emphasizing its cooler growing conditions by not exhibiting overly ripe or aggressive tannins. On the palate it has wonderful intensity with very careful handling of oak which allows its typical terroir and natural characters of the wine to come through.

This is an excellent partner for a Sunday roast or BBQ lamb. Drink now or cellar for the next 2-3 years.

Ch Tour de Gilet (Bordeaux) 2016 Superieur

A traditional blend of mostly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the magnificent 2016 vintage, the 2016 Château Tour de Gilet truly shines. Bolder and richer in flavor than one might expect bouquet of blackcurrant, cranberry and forest floor. In the mouth a delightful mélange of berry flavors (blackberry and currant), dark cherry and damsel plum make a delightful appearance on a wave of silky tannins. Nicely balanced and endowed with traditional Bordeaux character and style.

As the name implies, Bordeaux superieur is a slightly better version of standard Bordeaux and gives you these extra benefits;

Use of older vines, Densely planted vineyards, Required ripeness of fruit and natural sugar levels upon harvest, Lower harvest yields, Minimum 10.5% ABV, 12-month minimum barrel aging requirement.

Not bad for a couple of extra bucks!

Zilzie Selection 23 (Aus) 2019 Merlot

Exclusive Winery Clearance!

Dark berry fruits of the forest with velvety tannins and a touch of oak.

Merlot grapes from selected vineyards were harvested at optimum maturity to maximise varietal fruit flavours and supple tannins. Fruit was fermented and left on skins in static and rotary fermenters for seven days to maximise colour and flavour extraction. After primary fermentation the wines were soft pressed and underwent malolactic fermentation before being aged in French oak for six months before being blended and filtered prior to bottling.
