Zonzo Estate 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

Zonzo Estate, a little slice of rustic Tuscany in the Yarra Valley, now has its own range of wines, crafted by talented winemakers Caroline Mooney and Kate Goodman. This is one of five debut wines and it impresses with its lively cassis intensity along with some leafy notes and hints of spice. No expense has been spared on the packaging; heavy bottle, quality cork and waxed seal all scream "luxury item" but it takes a couple of goes before you can get to the cork without slicing your hand to pieces removing the wax. When you do get to what is in the bottle you will be impressed by the flavours and the structure. A fine debut. $75.
