An inky almost impenetrable purple potion. Dark as night. This is our super-premium flagship wine, named in tribute to the bravery of members of the Z Special Unit, the celebrated multi-national commando force of the Australian Army during WWII. We are proud to have a partnership with Legacy South Australia, whom receive a portion of sales of this wine.

Vineyard Notes
The fruit for Z Force is sourced from hand tended blocks in the Seaview Heights sub-region of McLaren Vale, which were planted in the 1920s. This particular vineyard has supplied some of the greatest wines of the region.
Production Notes
A proportion of the sales of this wine are donated to help support Legacy South Australia. Our proud partnership was borne through this wine being named in tribute to the bravery of members of the Z Special Unit, the celebrated multi-national commando force of the Australian Army during WWII.
