Cracka Review

Zilzie have created the kind of wine your al fresco barbecue feast is in desperate need of - it’s soft, approachable and it pairs well with everything from chicken to lamb and even steak – a perfect all rounder. We love the way they have made such an easy drinking red that is priced to please and tastes so good. Enjoy its core of blackberry, plum and spice, its shades of mint and charry oak before a juicy palate of soft fruit and supple tannins fill out the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Soft and juicy, the Selection 23 Cabernet Merlot is the ultimate entertainer, effortlessly mingling plum flavours with blackberry and spice and introducing to the party fine supple oak tannins right at the end. Sure to charm friends and dazzle the family, this is one wine you won't want to leave off the guest list.

Palate: Layers of rich, ripe dark berries with a touch of spice and subtle oak

Nose has vanilla, bacon and some minty notes. Palate full of blackberry and black licorice flavours.

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
A medium-weight wine; light oak merges seamlessly with elegant varietal fruit and is supported by fine tannins.
