Te Mata Estate Red Bordeaux Blend Hawkes Bay Coleraine 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

From New Zealand's Hawkes's Bay, this 45% Cab. Sauvignon, 37 % Merlot and 18%<br/>Cab. Franc is rated as New Zealand's top Bordeaux blend, aged for 20 months in<br/>new & seasoned barrels, resulting a cool, chiselled, extremely elegant<br/>wine. Magenta in colour and aromas of blackcurrants, very ripe cherries and<br/>marzipan. Perfectly ripe and floral, it shows flavours of brambly blackcurrants<br/>and dark cherry syrup with hints of rosemary. The palate is powerful with<br/>fine-grained tannins leading to a long, firm finish. Match with a peppered side<br/>of beef. <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)
