Zilzie Mystery 'Family Selection' Chardonnay 2016 (12 x 750mL), SEA.

Description:

Region: Murray Darling

Winemaking Notes

The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to preserve freshness and quality.

Cool fermented in stainless steel with a small parcel on French oak with lees stirring to give length and roundness to the palate.

Vintage Notes

The mild weather conditions during spring with warm February temperatures and the odd burst of extreme heat resulted in an early start to vintage, bringing forward the ripening of some varietals and shortening the harvest time. Whites were picked at night and reds just before dawn in the cooler temperatures to retain optimal flavour development. The earlier than expected 2016 harvest delivered fruit with excellent varietal characters resulting in wine with an ideal balance of sugar, acid, colour and flavour.

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.
