Painting by Zema

Zema Estate The Painter Shiraz 2020, Coonawarra, AUD $22

The founder, Italian immigrant Demetrio Zema, started his career in Australia as a house-painter. This wine came via the Wine Selectors wine club.

There’s excellent depth of colour and rich, fully ripe bouquet of dark fruits and earthy spices. The wine is full-bodied, with soft tannins and oak is barely evident. A really smart wine at the price, with good concentration and length. (Screwcap)
