Zilzie Bulloak Cabernet Merlot 2020 (6 x 750mL) SEA

Description:

Winemaking

Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from selected vineyards were harvest at optimum maturity to maximise varietal 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. The wine was then blended and filtered prior to bottling.

Vintage

The 2020 growing season was characterised by dry and warm weather; although the summer had minimal rain and some of the mildest conditions seen in the past 20 years, the region enjoyed steady fruit development and low disease pressure across the board. Whilst some strong winds during flowering reduced crop levels, our 2020 wines have distinctive varietal flavours with bright, spicy reds and clean, aromatic whites.

Winery Profile

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.
