New Zealand's most famous red wine, first made in 1982.
Described by Decanter magazine as "New Zealand's First Growth" the Coleraine is a classic Bordeaux blend of predominately Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from several of Te Mata's finest plots. The different plots were harvested, fermented and matured in new French oak at first before being blended into the final wine 9 months later. This final blend then spent another several months maturing in barrel before being bottled in December 2016.
Vibrant floral, dark fruit and sweet spice aromas lead onto a textured, complex and refined full-bodied and still lively palate of concentrated cassis and black cherry fruit flavours with notes of cedar and spice.
This wine has aging potential of up to a couple of decades.
