About Z WINE

………………………………………………………………………………………..

Z (for Zerk) was born from a vision for stylish wine without compromise. Z was designed to be the best. High quality fruit, winemaking techniques and presentation make this wine a positively sophisticated and elegant drink. Our wines have soul and style, capturing the past and displaying an inspiring modern twist. ‘Z Shiraz is quintessentially Barossa; rich, desirable and irresistible’

All wines are hand crafted in small batches with all bottles individually numbered so you know our promise of ‘quality not quantity’, and that you are purchasing a unique product.

Janelle Zerk | Winemaker

………………………………………………………………………………………..

Janelle has always had a natural affiliation with everything wine.  She grew up playing and helping out on the family vineyard in the Barossa Valley, but has since spread her wings – putting herself through the prestigious Oenology degree at Adelaide University and completing a dozen vintages across Australia including St Hallett, Brokenwood and Mt View Estate (just to name a few…)

………………………………………………………………………………………..

Three overseas vintages in Tuscany, Sonoma and Burgundy also compliment her expanding repertoire.  Janelle now resides in the Barossa Valley where she continues to expand her dynamic Z WINE brand with business partner and Sister, Kristen Zerk.

Janelle has lots of great ideas and enthusiasm for the future and believes that there is also a parallel market that is spirited & looking for a classy & edgy wine like ‘Z’.  The small company’s coveted flagship wine is the quintessential Barossa Valley ‘Z’ Shiraz.  It’s a stylish wine that is rich with soul, style and sophistication – inside and out!

Janelle was also a Wine Society “winemaker of the year” finalist in 2010.
