Overview
The Giorgio Zaglia Winery produces quality wines in Friuli, in the far north-east Italy, in Friuli D.O.C. wines area, where the existence of a consolidated winemaking tradition is unquestionable. The Estate, stretching across a surface of about 30 hectares, is situated in the municipalities of Precenicco and Pocenia, in the south-east of the province of Udine between the Stella and Tagliamento rivers, where the clayey soil, rich in the mineral salt, and the near Adriatic Sea, producing warm and salty air currents, create an extraordinary micro-climate which is ideal for wine growing.


History
Date Founded: 1970
Owner: Giorgio Zaglia
Winery Philosophy: The wines are grown according to low environmental impact standards, the grapes are picked strictly by hand and vinification, based on refined physical techniques rather than chemical, is implemented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. Eventually, fining and ageing both in steel and barrique give birth to a series of balanced white and red classic wines from Friuli, with appreciated genuine and noble features.
Established by Aldo Zaglia in 1970, the winery was taken over by his son Giorgio in the first half of the Eighties. After taking a degree in Agricultural Sciences, he brought in some remarkable changes both in the vineyards and the cellar, getting together old tradition with news technologies. Respect for the environment and constant quality research are the main principles which have been leading Giorgio Zaglia since then. In 1995 he started replanting the vineyards, increasing planting density per hectare, adopting short pruning and shrewd thinning and the most updates and accurate methods needed to obtain wines that enhance the characteristics of the territory where they originate.

Babylons Peak Paardeberg Shiraz 2018

Babylons Peak Paardeberg Shiraz is made from 100 percent Shiraz. 

Babylon's Peak winery, situated on the highest weathered granite slopes of the Paardeberg Mountain, is privately owned by the Basson family who has passed down the tradition, passion and art of winemaking over four generations. Predominantly low-yield dryland bushvines are selected to produce these excellent wines with distinctive character.

A classic Shiraz with dark fruit, violets and white pepper. An elegant wine with ripe tannins and a lingering aftertaste.

The grapes were harvested by hand. The grapes were destalked only, no crushing was done. Cold maceration was done before fermentation started in open fermenters. The grapes fermented between 24-26°C for 5-7 days, after which the wine was taken to barrels where it went through malolactic fermentation. After malolactic fermentation was completed, the wine spent 14 months in 225 litre French oak barrels until bottling.

Pairs with rich and creamy meat dishes eg. oxtail and venison.

Review:

"The Shiraz is our favorite of the Babylon Peak portfolio. It offers nice purity of black fruit with a licorice note on the nose and flavors of blackberry, mocha, and a touch of dried fruit. It’s softly textured with good supporting acidity and has an attractive cracked pepper spice note. Fermented with some viognier skins and matured 12-14 months in oak barrels. - Don Winkler" - i-winereview.com (The Wines of Babylon’s Peak in South Africa’s Swartland, September 30th 2019), 91 pts

Hugl Zweigelt Classic 2018 (liter)

Hugl Zweigelt Classic is made from 100 percent Zweiglt. 

Despite its relative youth, Zweigelt is actually an Austrian classic. This variety was created in 1922, when Dr. Fritz Zweigelt crossed two grapes - St Laurent and Blaufränkisch. Originally, it was intended for the new variety to be called Rotburger, referring to the place where it was born, Klosterneuburg. But this name never took hold, and instead, Zweigelt was named after the man who was the key in its development.
Today, Zweigelt is the most widely planted red variety in Austria, growing in nearly 9% of this country's vineyards. It is a robust grape, highly resistant to dryness, frost and various diseases. 
The wine boasts a concentrated color, fruity and spicy aromas, cherry flavors. Full-bodied, smooth and round, the wine is an ideal food companion.

Only the best grapes are harvested with a lot of experience and know-how and further processed. The grapes are fermented directly gently pressed and cooled. The fermentation takes place exclusively in stainless steel tanks.

Perfectly at home on any picnic, delicious with fried chicken, and tames the heat when paired with spicy dishes. There is also a slight watermelon note that makes it perfect for spring and summer. A great pairing with barbecued shrimp.
