Te Mata Tasting Note

From a fairytale vintage, Coleraine ’19 is both Beauty and the Beast, capturing a new depth and power, with an exquisite perfume, and spellbinding enchantment.

Midnight-dark ruby shimmers with a magenta edge. Coleraine ’19 is heralded by fragrant black roses, cherry, bramble, raspberry syrup and woodsmoke. A kiss of wild strawberry and dark chocolate transforms into a seductive palate laden with dark, ripe, forest berries. Majestic, velvet tannin entwines with the brightness and purity of classic Coleraine in a tale as old as time, creating captivating length and balance.

Coleraine ’19 – Beauty and the Beast. A marriage of grace and refinement with strength and power.

Winemaking

Coleraine '19

Each parcel of grapes was destemmed before a traditional warm, plunged fermentation and extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were then run to predominately new French oak barrels for 16 months’ maturation. Throughout this time, they were regularly topped and racked. The assemblage was made in January 2020. The finished wine was bottled in December 2020. The final blend is 59% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot and 4% cabernet franc.

Vineyards

Havelock Hills

Coleraine ’19 was hand harvested from separate plots within Te Mata’s vineyards between 26 March and 10 April 2019.

Coleraine

Origin

Coleraine derives its name from the Coleraine vineyard, home of John and Wendy Buck of Te Mata Estate. John’s late grandfather was born in Coleraine in Northern Ireland and the name has been maintained through the family home 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.
