5 Stars, 100/100 - Sam Kim, Wine orbit
“Destined for a long life, this majestic offering shows cassis, dark plum, hint of tobacco, cedar and floral aromas on the nose. The palate is packed with rich fruit intensity combined with layers of silky texture and complex flavours, wonderfully supported by perfectly pitched chalky tannins, making it sturdy and structured with a seemingly endless finish. Flawless and spellbinding.”

97/100 Cameron Douglas MS
"Complex and very sophisticated with a calm yet mysterious package of aromas: elegance and finesse, aromas of dark berries and varietal, ripe cabernet, some sweet tobacco, dark olive and barrel spices. Very harmonious already, but lots of youth and palate tension. Big tannins, ripe tannins and acidity to match. Delicious, young, vibrant. Best from 2028? through 2040."

Te Mata are calling this a  "fairytale vintage" showing both power and grace. Described as "Beauty and the Beast, capturing a new depth and power, with an exquisite perfume, and spellbinding enchantment."

Surely one for collectors, if you manage to get some.....

Midnight-dark ruby shimmers with a magenta edge. Coleraine ’19 is heralded by fragrant black roses, cherry, bramble, raspberry syrup and woodsmoke. A kiss of wild strawberry and dark chocolate transforms into a seductive palate laden with dark, ripe, forest berries. Majestic, velvet tannin entwines with the brightness and purity of classic Coleraine in a tale as old as time, creating captivating length and balance.

Coleraine ’19 is 59% Cabernet, 37% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. French oak barrels for 16 months’ maturation. Coleraine ’19 was hand harvested from separate plots within Te Mata’s vineyards between 26 March and 10 April 2019.
A single vineyard wine until 1989, Coleraine is an assemblage of the finest wines produced from distinct plots within Te Mata Estate’s oldest Havelock Hills vineyards first planted
in 1892.
