The Forbes have been growing fruit for generations, they've won many accolades around the national wine show circuit and supplied grapes to Southcorp for some of Australia's most favourite and memorable vintages. In their quest to craft the essential expression of Australian Pinot Gris, they have collated parcels of hand picked grapes from the balmy, elevated, cool ripening climes of Adelaide Hills. Juicy and decidedly varietal, Zilzie is vibrant with crisp orchard fruit characters and a brisk minerality before finishing, intense, savoury and refreshingly dry.
Parcels of Pinot Gris are hand harvested from good vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The cool growing season and orientation of vines maximises sunlight, aiding in the development of rich and vibrant fruit. Well balanced canopies protect the delicate berries from summer sun. Hand picked grapes are whole bunch pressed to minimise colour and phenolic extraction. Juices are cold settled and treated to vinification through the action of aromatic yeasts at lower temperatures, in a combination of well seasoned oak puncheons and controlled fermenters. Upon completion, the finished wine is promptly bottled to capture and retain the freshness and vitality of Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris.
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw with green hues. Beautiful aromas of nashi pear, citrus and jasmine florals, citrus blossom and nectarine over background mineral characters. A delicate palate with fresh fruit flavours of nashi and nectarine, creamy, richly textured mid palate and a fine minerality. Enjoy with crisp fried whiting or seared scallop sushi.
