Winery & Vintage Info

Coonawarra is renowned for its remarkable ‘terra rossa’ soil, a thin one metre band of soil over laying a deep formation of limestone.

The Zema family is proudly traditional in its approach to vineyard practices, favouring hand pruning and limited irrigation to maximise fruit quality.
These practices are enhanced by the family’s three strategically selected prime vineyard locations, capitalising on the regions subtle climatic variations.

The Estate range wines are vibrant expressions of varietal flavour. The Cabernet Sauvignon was made from fruit which was harvested at its optimum maturity. The wine was fermented for 7 days under controlled temperatures in a combination of rotary and static fermenters. Maturation for 18 months in small French oak barrels has assisted in the development of a wine that shows vibrancy and richness. Subsequently, aged in bottle for two years for smoothness and drinkability.

Well-structured with outstanding depth of fruit, this wine while drinking well now will continue to gain complexity and offer excellent cellaring potential.

The Zema family has been consistently producing exceptional hand-crafted Coonawarra wines since 1982. All Zema Estate wines are Estate grown and vintaged.
