Match Coonawarra with Cabernet Sauvignon and you can hardly go wrong, so firm is the fit between this classic region and top-drawer variety. For years Zema have been a standout producer and that continues to this day with generous wines that never lose their sense of place. Fragrant herbal, cassis fruit on a amply weighted palate finishing with firm tannins. Roast lamb special.
The 2010 vintage is in the records as being
one of the most ideal from a grape growing
and winemaking perspective culminating
in even ripening and growing conditions
generating a vintage intake free of any urgency.

of fruit, this wine while drinking well now
will continue to gain complexity and offers
excellent cellaring potential.
