Zilzie Coonawarra Cabernet
Fruit was sourced from selected Coonawarra vineyards with each vineyard parcel being fermented and managed separately.
The wines were fermented in static and rotary fermenters to achieve good colour and varietal fruit expression.
At the completion of fermentation, each batch was drained and pressed before transferring to French oak barriques for 12 months maturation before being blended and bottled.
Aromas of plum and blackcurrant fruit. On the palate blackcurrant and red cherry flavours with a savoury touch and toasty oak.
Wine would compliment lamb cutlets with roasted vegetables!

Pike & Joyce Pinot Gris 2017
91 pts (James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion)
The palate is medium bodied possessing stone fruit mentioned above and some mineral/stony textures that gently wash over the mid palate providing length and interest. Balanced acidity ensures the wine does not finish fat or heavy.
Summary: The Adelaide Hills region has proven to be well suited to growing Pinot Gris successfully. This is the 12th release of the Pike & Joyce version and we think one of the best. It is still one of the best white wines to pair up with spicy Asian food. Drink now and the next 3-5 years.
