Te Mata Coleraine Cabernet Merlot 2019


Without doubt, one the few wines outside of Bordeaux that can rub shoulders with the very best. One of the wine world’s great bargains, Te Mata’s 2019 Coleraine will rank as one of New Zealand’s greatest ever wines. Tasted alongside the 2017 and 2018, this was the least black fruited of the three, offering a floral nose, red and dark fruits and violets. The palate is ethereal, sensual, elegant and perfect. Captivating and poised, there is so much power here, and it’s not just the long life, it’s the power of beauty. Dustings of spice, camphor and tobacco, there is lightness here that makes me wonder if Te Mata had Tyrrells’ Sacred Sites in mind and not Bordeaux, when they made this wine. Unbelievable. Waters Wine Co.
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. A blend of 59 cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot & 4% cabernet franc. At its best: 2029 to 2049. 100 Points – Sam Kim,
Made from 59% cabernet sauvignon with merlot and cabernet franc. Ripe, cassis and berry flavours with a seasoning of spice. This wine represents elegance on a grand scale and is on one of the best vintage I’ve tasted. It has plushness and power with great potential. 98 Points – Bob Campbell, The Real Review
