Te Mata Estate Red Bordeaux Blend Hawkes Bay Coleraine 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Coleraine '09 has a saturated magenta colour with concentrated aromas of blackcurrants, spice and dark old fashioned roses. The palate opens with the dense sweet, dark berry fruits indicative of a great year. The focus quickly turns to rich fine tannins that fill the mouth, leaving a lasting impression of a wine of significant ageing ability. Coleraine '09 will be considered amongst the greatest Coleraines.

This was my first NZ Cabernet blend and it definitely won't be my last. Dark berries, good acidity, smooth tannins and a long finish. A very elegant wine.
