Zope should be fine. Java is a little bit faster than Python, but
that's not where the bottleneck is, so you don't have to worry about

Plone is a CMS using the Zope application server. Others are CPS and Silva.
Both CPS and Plone has some of the functionality you wanted, so you
may be able to avoid writing as much there. Download them and check
them out.
