These wines were consumed with pizza and with steak and saw out the distance.
2013 Majella The Musician Cabernet Shiraz
This is an interesting blend, leading with the Coonawarra’s famous variety, Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by Shiraz.
Steve noted how the Cabernet makes it self known immediately before the Shiraz makes its way to the stage.
2012 Zema Estate Shiraz
The Zema Estate wine was very different, with a more stringent package of aroma and flavours with a sharp edge that nicely helped ‘cut into’ the steak.
Steve noted how this wine has an almost ephemeral behaviour on the palate, arising like mist from a morning amid Coonawarra vines, before descending back down, deep into the palate like well trained sky jumpers.
Both wines were enjoyable and these words do not do justice to the fun of the live tasting which you can listen to below, starting about six minutes in.
