Te Mata ‘Coleraine’ Cabernet/Merlot Hawke’s Bay 1995

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 05-Aug-2017
Even ruby-red with garnet hues showing some depth, lighter edge with bricking. The bouquet is soft and refined in presentation with harmoniously integrated aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruits, soy sauce and layers of dried herbs and game, with earth and cedar. Some curranty undertones show the fruit freshness still inherent in the wine. The palate is sweet and rich, with red berry fruits intermixed with savoury herb, game and earthy secondary notes and the beginnings of tertiary development. The palate is elegant in proportion with underlying fine-grained tannins just beginning to soften, and gently refreshing acidity. A slightly smaller-scale wine, showing secondary character, this is beautifully proportioned with fruit sweetness still the feature. This will keep 5-7+ years on this plateau. 59% CS, 34% Me, 7% CF. 13.0% alc. 19.0/20 Aug 2017 Release Price $36.00
