Description

“Unbelievably good. Young, but the potential is overwhelmingly potent. Floral, nutty, intense small-berried fruit, cedar, anise and sweet herb. Tight, medium-bodied, so concentrated, but light too, ultra-mineral, fresh, all the gravel and tense cabernet feel, but with perfume unlocked: so flagrant and fragrant. The length is superb. I’m taken aback by the beauty and essence-like nature of this wine. My precious. Easily one of the best wines I’ve tasted in the last decade.”
98+/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, November 2021 (2020 Vintage)

From the outstanding 2020 vintage, this Coleraine displays awesome power, structure and concentration while retaining elegance. As usual, it is tight, but showing the vibrant promise of that awaits the careful collector. This year’s blend is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc and has spent 17 months in new French oak.

Smells

Powerfully aromatic – classical Cabernet characters of crème de cassis, bay leaf, plum, tobacco and graphite.

Tastes

Dense and focused, still youthful but pristine fruit floods the palate, closely followed by a burly entourage of structural tannins, the fruit still very primary but undeniably luxurious and filled with undeniable potential. Possibly more forward than a classic Coleraine vintage, but with all the bones, flesh and sinew to reward patient cellaring over 10 to 25 years. The wine will improve with a few hours in the decanter before enjoying, especially if opened before 2026.
