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.
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.
