Professional Wine Reviews for Te Mata Estates Cab/Merlot Coleraine 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.

Additional Information on Te Mata Estates Cab/Merlot Coleraine 2014

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 has consistently impressed over the past few decades, with many proclaiming this southern country as being the 'pearl' of the New World wine locations. One of the key attributes of New Zealand wines is their wonderful fruit-forward flavors, which make them a favorite with newcomers to wine, as they manage to be deliciously drinkable without posing many challenges. That isn't to say there is little complexity or interesting features to their wines, as one can easily discover through the fantastic range of wines available – from smoky and mineral rich Sauvignon Blancs, to juicy and plummy Pinot Noirs and the beautiful Bordeaux style wines sourced from the excellent Auckland region. New Zealand wineries clearly have a dedication to quality alongside quantity, and such zeal and expertise is quickly helping them become established as world leaders in regards to both domestic sales and exported wines.
