WINE: 27 SEPTEMBER 2014

Zema Estate 2009 Cluny Cabernet Merlot

Coonawarra SA | 14.0 per cent alcohol | $24.95

This is a wine I respect almost as much as the actor of the same name.

Though labelled a cabernet-merlot, it also contains 5 per cent each of cabernet franc and malbec, two of the other permitted varieties in Bordeaux.

The result is a smooth, complex dry red with predominant characters of dark cherries.

Absolutely love it.
