“How wonderful and good is this wine’ – 96+ Points Gary Walsh
96 Points Huon Hooke

The final blend is 54% cabernet sauvignon, 36% merlot and 10% cabernet franc.

Coleraine derives its name from the Coleraine vineyard, home of John and Wendy Buck of Te Mata Estate. John’s late grandfather was born in Coleraine in Northern Ireland and the name has been maintained through the family home to the wine. Originally a single vineyard wine, from 1989 Coleraine has been an assemblage of the finest wines produced from distinct plots within Te Mata Estate’s oldest vineyards on the Havelock Hills.

“So floral, so pretty, and yet masculine too. Roses, violets, bay leaf, baking spice and biscuit oak, plum, black cherry and raspberry. Medium bodied, inky black tea tannin, laced with tobacco, pitch perfect acidity, deep fruit with a spray of dried herb lending perfume and contrast. Rich but contained, a slurry of grainy tannin on a very long finish. How wonderful and good is this wine? In short, very.” – 96+ Points Gary Walsh

“Deep red/purple colour and a ripe berry aroma which recalls blueberry, blackberry and raspberry. The palate is firmer and more concentrated than Awatea, with a fine, balanced but persuasive tannin grip, and excellent persistence. There is richness and density here, and the flavours and aromas are of a ripeness seldom seen in New Zealand Bordeaux styles. A finishing note of violets. Very stylish wine with a big future. A top vintage for this wine.” – 96 Points Huon Hooke
