2013 Family Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

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. An exquisite wine with all the characteristics of a classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Wonderfully rich, concentrated fruit flavours of blackberry and cassis, carefully balanced by natural acidity and finely grained tannins. Superb complexity and structure that will reward long term cellaring.
