Professional Wine Reviews for Te Mata Estates Cab/Merlot Coleraine Red Blend 2014

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Coleraine Cabernet / Merlot was a finished blend, just needing to be fined and bottled in January 2016. Deep garnet-purple, it has a forward nose of pronounced cassis, black pepper, earth, violets, pencil lead and bay leaves plus a waft of cedar. Very elegant, medium-bodied, well-structured and fine, it lacks the lovely freshness of the 2013 but offers plenty of expression at this early stage.

Winery Te Mata Estates

Region: Hawkes Bay

Hawkes Bay in northern New Zealand has long been recognized as one of the country's most important wine regions, and is generally understood to be the birthplace of the New Zealand wine industry in the mid nineteenth century. Since the first vines were planted in this beautiful part of the country, the wine industry of New Zealand has gone from strength to strength, and is now a major world player on the international wine scene. Many of the country's flagship wines hail from Hawkes Bay, where historic wineries have been producing superb wines made from the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes which flourish there for over a hundred and fifty years, and which ripen under the hot sunshine and in the mineral rich soils which typify the region.

Country: New Zealand

New Zealand is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and ecologically diverse countries in the world, and the wines which are produced there are a fine representation of this diversity and overall quality. With beautifully long and warm summers, a brisk oceanic climate and mile upon mile of gently sloping mountainsides, the vineyards which have sprung up there over the past century have brought about truly fantastic results, with wine now contributing a considerable amount to the economy of the country. In recent years, New Zealand wines have won some of the most prestigious awards available in the wine world, with most of the lauded wineries coming from the Auckland region, where there has been considerable effort to replicate the finest wines of the Bordeaux region of France. The Bordeaux grape varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec) all flourish in the mineral rich soil of the region, and the results have been outstanding, marking New Zealand a strong contender for finest New World wine country.
