Te Mata Estate Coleraine 2006

Te Mata Estate is a superb vineyard in the Hawkes Bay and Coleraine is often regarded as New Zealand's best red wine. Deep red in colour, this wine has delicate nose of dark berries. Dry to taste this is a full bodied wine packed with cherry, plum and dark berry flavours. quite tannic with a nice level of acid, yet quite smooth. Possibly a bit early for drinking, but it is still enjoyable. It could easily handle further cellaring.
