2016 Family Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 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 24 months has assisted the development of the rich characters of the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, producing a vibrant rich wine with attractive fruit and oak flavours. Full, intense blackberry and mulberry are well complimented by subtle oak flavours and tight, chalky tannins. With excellent balance and complexity this is an exquisite wine with all the characteristics of a classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.
