Very deep, concentrated, bright purple/red colour. The bouquet is exquisite with a multitude of black fruits, blueberry, cassis, violet and cedar aromas, and much more besides. The detail is outstanding, as is the intensity of the palate. It’s very concentrated and powerful, firmly-structured and has tremendous persistence. The tannins are firm and abundant and will help guarantee a long life, but they are ripe and accessible and the wine is already approachable. (52% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot, 15% cabernet franc)
After a tricky 2017 vintage in Hawke's Bay, Coleraine is back on form in 2018: the warm growing season and lengthy autumn allowed the team at Te Mata the luxury of picking long into April. This is packed with youthful vitality and primary fruit. There is layer upon layer of flavor here, from sweet raspberry fruit on entry through cassis, cocoa and roses with tea leaf and pencil lead on the lengthy conclusion. It is delicate but there's always an innate intensity within its silken core. The tannins are fine-grained and resolved, and the finish is long and drawn out. Another smash hit that will easily improve over the coming two decades. The final blend is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc; the wines spent 17 months maturing in French oak.
Te Mata Estate is one of New Zealand's most highly regarded wineries, known for producing some of the country's most iconic and sought-after wines. Originally established by English migrant John Chambers in 1854 but it wasn’t until 1892 that the winery started to take off. After returning on a trip from France, third son Bernard had the idea to plant vineyards on the north-facing hills around Havelock North mimicking those of the Medoc. With over 100 years of winemaking under their best belt which is rare for a young winemaking country like New Zealand, the great Robert Parker has called Te Mata “New Zealand’s greatest winery” whilst Decanter has called it “New Zealand's first growth”. "Te Mata is the maker of Coleraine, New Zealand's closest thing to a Bordeaux classed growth, which can age well for two decades and more" highlights Rebecca Gibb MW (Vinous).
The flagship wine of Te Mata Estate is the Coleraine, a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. This wine is widely regarded as one of New Zealand's finest red wines, and is known for its depth, complexity, and elegance. The Coleraine is a true expression of the Hawkes Bay terroir and is a testament to Te Mata's commitment to quality and excellence. James Suckling has previously called the wine “New Zealand’s Sassicaia”. The winery has been on a good roll of vintages with the 2019 and 2020 receiving 100 points.
