Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia
Coonawarra Cabernet is a genre unto itself, and Zema excels, burnished by fine tannins, oozing with currant, mint and cassis.
The passion for wine has never diminished at Zema. The family's dream has always been to own a piece of Coonawarra's famed Terra rossa soil and create their own world class wines. The attention to detail in the vineyard, including the very unfashionable practice of hand-pruning is what stands Zema apart from the majority in Coonawarra. This wine was made from optimally harvested fruit, fermented for 7 days under controlled temperatures in a combination of rotary and static fermenters. Maturation in small French and American oak casks for sixteen months has assisted in the development of a fabulous Coonawarra Cabernet that shows vibrant richness and attractive fruit flavours. Alcohol 14.0%
Dark colour with purple hue. Concentrated aromas of dark ripe berries, classic blackcurrant, sweet mulberry and cassis. Excellent varietal fruit, vibrant and rich on the palate with a great combination of berry fruit and refined nutty oak. Supremely elegant and savoury, the pristine sweet fruit is enveloped in the very firm dry tannins with tremendous ease and runs from the tip of the tongue to the very back of the palate.
