Overview

A true family effort, Zema Estate was started by Italian immigrants Demetrio and Francesca Zema in the early 1960s. Demetrio's family were first involved in the wine business back home in Calibria in the early 1800s, and in 1982, after years of hard work and saving, the Zemas were able to purchase a small block of vines in the heart of Coonawarra.

Today, sons Matt and Nick manage the family business, with Demetrio and Francesca never too far away. The wines are still made with the same philosophy: Estate-grown fruit, hand pruned (a rare thing in Coonawarra) and minimally irrigated, and vinified and bottled on the Estate.

Winery Tasting Notes

This wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown on our family vineyard situated in Coonawarra renowned for its world famous 'terra rossa' soil in South Australia. Our vineyard is non-irrigated, the vines hand pruned and the grapes harvested at optimum ripeness, allowing us to make a wine that employs a combination of age old winemaking skills and modern technology. This has been matured in small French and American oak casks for 16 months which has enhanced the full berry characters of the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit and produced a vibrant rich wine with attractive fruit flavours, that will continue to develop with bottle age.
