An opulent Shiraz with brooding and succulent dark berry fruits infused with chocolate tannins and hints of vanilla from the structural French oak support.
A deep inviting purple colour.
Cellar well for 10-30 years or more.
We recommend indulging in this opulent Shiraz with aged vintage cheeses or an eye fillet with a red wine reduction. Decanting 3-6 hours (or more) before drinking will open up and intensify this outstanding wine.
The 'Julius' Shiraz is Z-Wine's premium flagship wine- carefully basket-pressed and produced from an amazingly concentrated vintage in 2013. This resulted in a beautifully hand-crafted boutique Barossa Valley Shiraz. The brooding and succulent blackberry fruits are infused with dark chocolate tannins (derived from the Lyndoch soil terrior) it has hints of vanilla from the structural French oak support.
Oaked 18 months in French and American oak barriques (40% new).
The Zerk vineyard situated in Lyndoch in the Barossa Valley is steeped in family history. This wine captures the essence of the vineyard and five generations of pioneering hard work from 1846 (over 160 years ago).
