Quadruple 98/100 rated 2018 Te Mata Coleraine presented in wooden gift boxes at a striking $114.90 bottle for Black Friday SALE only – save up to $35.00.

"

2018 is a Classic Coleraine with a quartet of 98/100 ratings including Bob Campbell MW and the iconic and notably conservative Aussie critic Huon Hooke. This First Growth of NZ Cabernet displays great structure and concentration but the defining character of the vintage is its approachability. It’s gushing with bright fruit, massively concentrated and precocious, but allied with structure and complexity to ensure it will live for a very long time. Deserving of its elsewhere price of $149.99... Fine Wine Delivery have secured an allocation presented in wooden gift boxes for our “Black Friday SALE at the striking price of $114.90... a saving of up to $35.00 bottle.

The wine...

This year’s blend is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc and has spent 17 months in new French oak. Powerfully aromatic – classical Cabernet characters of crème de cassis, bay leaf, plum, berry, tobacco and graphite. Dense and focused, youthful pristine berry and plum fruits flood the palate, closely followed by a burly entourage of structural tannins. Still very primary but undeniably luxurious and beautifully savoury on the finish its filled with abundant potential. Possibly more forward than other classic Coleraine vintages, 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 2023.

4 x 98/100 scores... you know 2018 Coleraine is one for the ages (age for 2-3 decades if well stored) and for the Cabernet collector. It would be prudent to take advantage of our striking $114.90/bottle “Black Friday SALE” price and lay a few bottles or a case or two down to future proof your Cabernet indulgence 2028-2048? A bonus is its wooden gift boxing making it perfect for gifting to a special person, staff member or client... where you want to make the ultimate statement. Enjoy, Jeff

Description

It’s back to a classic vintage for the wine affectionately known as the First Growth of New Zealand... so say Fine Wine Delivery with a massive 98/100... and notably conservative and iconic Aussie critic Huon Hooke with a matching 98/100. 2018 displays great structure and concentration but the defining character of the vintage is its approachability. Often more restrained and tighter knit in its youth, this vintage is gushing with vibrancy and bright fruit, massively concentrated and precocious, but allied with structure and complexity to ensure it will live for a very long time. This year’s blend is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc and has spent 17 months in new French oak.

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

Tastes
Dense and focused, youthful pristine berry and plum fruits flood the palate, closely followed by a burly entourage of structural tannins. Still very primary but undeniably luxurious and beautifully savoury on the finish its filled with abundant potential. Possibly more forward than other classic Coleraine vintages, 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 2023.
