Zilzie Butterfly Kiss Shiraz 2020, Victoria

by | Aug 25, 2021

An interesting organic wine as, on the nose, it is not fruit driven for a change. Starts off reductive and needs some breathing to settle down. Opens up to strong spice notes with allspice, dried herbs, pepper and graphite. Medium bodied, slightly warming alcohol. Sour cherry and plum flavours, powdery tannins and medium finish.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
