Depth and complexity from perfect complement of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Blended from old bush vine Grenache,
which brings perfume and cinnamon spice to the fore; Shiraz
adds structure and chocolate flavours coupled with a dense
layer of dark berries from Mataro. No new oak has been used - and our fruitiest, cleanest and most aromatic barrels have been selected to display the most intense varietal character.
Serve with Peking duck, quinoa and braised venison or any game meats
Oaked 16 months in French oak barriques.
Z WINE (Z for Zerk) is the creation of dynamic sisters Kristen and Janelle Zerk. With over 160 years of Barossa heritage behind them they grew up together in the Barossa Valley on a vineyard that has been in the Zerk family for five generations.
In The Spotlight
"A 72/16/12% handpicked blend. Plenty of depth to the colour, and even more to the aroma and flavour span; red and black fruits, smoked meat and cinnamon spice all gambol on the bouquet and medium-bodied palate. Doesn't take a backwards step." James Halliday | 2016 Wine Companion
"Bright purple smelling wine with blackcurrant and cherry jubes, iron, licorice, florals. Medium bodied, silky tecture, minerally feel - great flavour and mouthfeel - but heat from alcohol shears the finish down somewhat. Pretty bold. Much to like, regardless, a puff of the old dragon's breath notwithstanding." GARY WALSH | The Wine Front.
