Following in the massive footsteps of the 2013 vintage (you know, the vintage dubbed “the stuff of legends” by Decanter magazine) Te Mata’s Coleraine 2014 is ready for launch – and NZ’s kingpin red is already lining up as one of the all time greats!
This world class Hawke’s Bay red, that many critics think stacks up as NZ’s finest red wine, is already being labelled as the greatest follow up vintage of Coleraine in living memory. Not surprising when you hear what some of NZ’s leading critics have to say about it…
* Bob Campbell rated it an insane 98/100, the same score he gave the ’13, and said “A wine that more than lives up to its stellar reputation and shows obvious potential.”
* Michael Cooper gave it top marks (5 Stars) and called it “Already very expressive and will flourish with cellaring.”
* Sam Kim gave it a perfect score of 100/100. Wow!
There’s good reason to be excited but with production down from last year (just 3,500 cases available globally) you can guarantee wine buffs around the world will be in a mad scramble to secure their allocation of a wine that people could be talking about for years to come yet.
If you’re a Coleraine collector, you simply cannot be without it. If Coleraine is yet to sit in your cellar – what a way to start!
Named after the town in Northern Ireland where Te Mata Estate owner John Buck’s grandfather was born and first produced in 1982. This famous Bordeaux style red is presented in individually wrapped in Coleraine branded, vintage dated tissue and will comfortably sit in your cellar for 10-15 years.
