Description

  • French oak
  • Ripe dark forrest berries
  • Dark chocolate
  • Velvety tannins

"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" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Feb 2021

"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" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2021

"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 to 2040" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier, Feb 2021

From a fairytale vintage, Coleraine ’19 is both Beauty and the Beast, capturing a new depth and power, with an exquisite perfume, and spellbinding enchantment. 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 – Beauty and the Beast. A marriage of grace and refinement with strength and power.

Coleraine ’19 was hand harvested from separate plots within Te Mata’s vineyards between 26 March and 10 April 2019.

Each parcel of grapes was destemmed before a traditional warm, plunged fermentation and extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were then run to predominately new French oak barrels for 16 months’ maturation. Throughout this time, they were regularly topped and racked. The assemblage was made in January 2020. The finished wine was bottled in December 2020. The final blend is 59% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot and 4% 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. 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.
