On March 1 Te Mata Estate released a new vintage of Coleraine. This is always the most important event on the New Zealand wine calendar and despite the challenging 2022 vintage, the winery team has crafted another release that has captured the imagination of the international wine press. 

The vintage is characterised by a very high cabernet sauvignon percentage (84%) - the highest cabernet level since the very first Coleraine release in 1982.  The high cabernet component has delivered a finely structured, dry wine that harks back to the Coleraines of old.  It is a wine that will need extended cellar time to show at its best, and does not offer the immediate charm and plusher palate weight of more recent vintages.

Tasting Notes

The 2022 vintage is 84% cabernet sauvignon, 13% merlot & 3% cabernet franc. 

Huon Hooke writes "The wine is full bodied and powerful, with a generous serving of fine grained tannins that add length, authority and a drying but supple finish. Tremendous persistence and wonderful structure. A great wine, that will richly reward long-term cellaring."

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "The ‘King of the Grape’ Cabernet Sauvignon comes to the fore with its flatteringly classy presence. This is captivating and totally seductive on the nose, exhibiting blackcurrant, violet, game, anise, subtle tobacco and cedary oak characters, leading to a powerfully concentrated palate displaying considerable depth and exceptional concentration. Harmonious too, it’s gloriously structured and balanced with a firm grip, yet the tannins are just right and seamlessly infused. Perfectly proportioned, this 2022 has the majestic feel that each previous Coleraine possess."

James Suckling writes “A very elegant young Coleraine with lovely aromas of oyster shell, lead pencil, sweet tobacco, black currant and moss. Very perfumed and expressive. Medium-bodied with fine tannins that are polished and energetic with some citrusy acidity underneath. Some dust to the texture. This is the second highest blend of cabernet sauvignon in the history of Coleraine with 84% cabernet."

Gary Walsh, The Wine Front writes "I tasted this over two days, and gee, it really moved about. Started off with a pop of fragrance and more rugged tannin, then it eased itself back into a more typical Coleraine profile, though for sure it’s a different style in some respects with its unusually high Cabernet Sauvignon component of 84%, the remainder being 13% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Black fruit, some red, pencil lead, a little aniseed and floral perfume, nori, baking spice, pimento, slight vanilla. Medium-bodied, a fair bit of chew, dark fruit and dark chocolate, porcini mushroom umami, grainy tannin, concentrated and chewy, earthy and ferrous, with a bright line of very ‘mineral’ acidity on a long finish. Excellent, albeit a more Cabernet focused expression of Coleraine, which marks it out as being different, and on that point such a worthy of addition to the cellar, though of course the wine is outstanding irrespective of that."

Erin Larkin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes "The 2022 Coleraine is laden at this stage with the outrageous attractiveness of youth. I mean, it’s irresistible. There’s raspberry, nori, rose petals, coffee grounds, star anise, salted licorice, sun-dried kelp/nori, warm pine and layers of peppercorns. In the mouth, the wine is so fresh, so alive, with so much energy, but it already is showing the svelte line of this house, this place. With a hint of raw cocoa laced through the finish, I’m sad to push this glass away. It will be the last time that I taste it for a while. A ripper. Excellent."

Mike Bennie / The Wine Front writes: "Whoa, so fresh, such beautiful perfume, floral, lavender and violets, touches of cassis, some woody spices, so lifted and frisky. Three days in mind you. White pepper, plum, faint choc-mint in there too. Scents for days. So fine, so silky, choc-liquorice, cassis strongly in the palate, blueberry, grunt of dried herbs and some truffle notes. Concentrated but so fresh in the same breath. Tannins all graphite and slate, wonderfully minerally. Beautiful."
