    The 33rd release of one of NZ’s most famous red wines is here! It was 120 years ago that Te Mata planted Cabernet vines in the Havelock Hills in Hawke’s Bay, today Coleraine is widely thought of as NZ’s finest red wine. Te Mata Estate Coleraine 2017

    The 2017 vintage saw a smaller than usual crop and allocations in the NZ market are down by a third. This did however help to produce a wine of high concentration, energy, dark colour and typically refined tannins. While the smaller crop did produce powerful concentration and finesse, it also put a squeeze on global allocations for this massively sought after wine, which Decanter magazine declared as “New Zealand’s First Growth”, a phrase in reference to the top wines of Bordeaux based on reputation and price.

    As a result stocks of this world famous red are paper thin. We’ve got no doubt our allocation will be gobbled up in no time! After all, this is the wine that globally attracts attention more than any other red from these shores…

    “A national trasure” – Jancis Robinson MW
    “Wine legend – the most avidly collected of New Zealand red wines” – Decanter magazine
    “A legendary Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend of New Zealand” – James Suckling
    ““I would have no hesitation placing it within the class of Bordeaux second growths” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

    If you’re a Coleraine collector it’s another must have! If Coleraine is yet to sit in your cellar – what a way to start, especially with this mega sized double magnum, also called a jeroboam. And remember, larger format bottles tend to show better potential in the cellar too.

    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 presented in swanky Coleraine branded wooden wine box – it’ll comfortably sit in your cellar for 10-15 years.
