Made from only the finest individually hand-harvested grapes, Te Mata Coleraine is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc that imbues it with a saturated magenta colour and concentrated aromas of blackcurrants, spice and dark old fashioned roses. The palate opens with the dense sweet, dark berry fruits indicative of a great vintage. The focus then turns to the rich, fine tannins that fill the mouth, leaving a lasting impression of a wine that has significant ageing ability.
This vintage of Coleraine is considered to be amongst the finest, complex Coleraines produced and will continue to evolve in bottle until at least 2024
Te Mata’s premium wines are bottled with leading technology corks; these are produced using liquid carbon dioxide which eliminates any possibility of cork taint and, when the wine is well cellared, they provide consistent evolution for every bottle
