Overview

The ‘cream of the crop’ the Family Selection wines represent the very best fruit, hand selected from the three Zema vineyard locations for intensity of flavour and varietal definition. Bigger and bolder than the Estate range, the Family Selection has richness and complexity, structure and depth of fruit, with a cellaring potential of at least a decade. This wine was fermented under controlled temperature for 7 days with part barrel fermentation to enhance complexity. Maturation in French oak barrels for 24months has assisted the development of the rich characters of the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, producing a vibrant rich wine with attractive fruit and oak flavours.

Expert Reviews

Rating 96 - James Halliday Published 01 August 2017

Matured for 22 months in new and 1yo French hogsheads. It is a lovely medium-bodied Coonawarra cabernet with ultra-typical cassis, mulberry and faintly minty fruit on the long, supple palate. The oak has entirely integrated, as have the tannins. Will cruise along for many years to come.

Winery Tasting Notes

An exquisite wine with all the characteristics of a classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Wonderfully rich, concentrated fruit flavours, excellent balance, and superb complexity and structure that will reward long term cellaring. Produced in extremely limited quantities, Zema Estate’s Family Selection Cabernet Sauvignon represents the ‘cream of the crop’.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Zema is one of the last outposts of hand-pruning in Coonawarra, with members of the Zema family tending the vineyard set in the heart of Coonawarra's terra rossa soil. Winemaking practices are straightforward; if ever there was an example of great wines being made in the vineyard, this is it. Exports to the UK, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and China.
