Tasting Notes 1987

It has a deep crimson colour, cherry and raspberry aromas, supported by integrated new oak and a long, rich finish of firm tannins. The palate is fresh and surprisingly soft, with flavours of red berries and just a touch of softly astringent tannin.

Coleraine derives its name from the Coleraine vineyard, home of John and Wendy Buck of Te Mata Estate. John’s late grandfather came from Coleraine in Northern Ireland and the name has been maintained through the family properties to the wine. Originally a single vineyard wine, from 1989 Coleraine has been an assemblage of the finest wines produced from distinct plots within Te Mata Estate’s oldest vineyards on the Havelock Hills.

Coleraine ’87- 'Developed nose, dusty and with plenty of classic cedary varietal Cab. Excellent definition – this feels very Bordeaux like in its regal flavours. Regal, mature and in a lovely place. Reminds me of ‘86 Coonawarra.' 95 Points
