Te Mata Estate Reviews
  • 'New Zealand’s First Growth. Many critics consider Coleraine up there with the best Bordeaux blends in the world. The original intention may have been to mirror the top Cru Classé but, today Coleraine has evolved its own style.'
  • 'If there was a Kiwi wine aristocracy, Te Mata would be it. Nestled in the foothills of the Te Mata heritage zone, they make some of the best wines in the country. Independent, family-owned, exclusively Hawke's Bay, and committed to making premium wine on site.'
  • Coleraine '15 - 'New Zealand’s Grange equivalent, only it comes from one place, is much cheaper, and to my tastes, is significantly better and more interesting.' 96+ Points
  • TOP 50 WINES OF THE WORLD 2016 'A stylish modern cabernet that could compete with the best from any continent.'
  • Coleraine '15 ★★★★★- Dark and dense, this is a highly refined blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc... Powerful with a lovely array of concentrated, ripe blackcurrant, plum, spice and nut flavours, it's an authoritative, youthful red.'

  • Merlot/Cabernets '15 - 'This fragrant French oak-aged Hawke's Bay red has satisfying body and ripe plum/spice flavours that are vibrant...'

  • Awatea '15 ★★★★★- 'Fragrant and full-bodied... this complex, savoury red is already a lovely mouthful.'
