Zema Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Good hue; a very well made wine from the Zema Estate vineyard; the elegant, medium-bodied palate has a classic Coonawarra cabernet sense of place, with fresh and lively plum, mulberry and cherry fruit, baked by perfectly balanced and integrated oak and tannins. 14% alc.

Strong crimson-red; the bouquet has a varietal/regional dusty/earthy edge to the blackcurrant fruit, and the well-balanced medium- to full-bodied palate takes this to its logical conclusion with firm, ripe tannins guaranteeing a long life.

Attractive medium-bodied wine, with effortess cabernet flavours in the blackcurrant/cassis spectrum; fine, ripe tannins and controlled oak run through the finish.

Good colour; quite complex, medium-bodied; good balance and texture; a complete wine.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Zema Estate never disappoints with its wines, wines which truly express the terroir from which they come. Deep red-purple, the bouquet is redolent with sweet blackcurrant/cassis fruit; the harmonious texture and flavour caresses the mouth, with all the components of ripe cassis, gentle oak, and ripe, rounded tannins in perfect balance.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Tremendous depth to the colour; the bouquet is powerful and intense, with blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, the palate luscious yet not jammy; here blackberry and cassis fruit ripples through a sweet mid-palate closing with fine tannins and subtle oak.
