First established in 1896, Te Mata is New Zealand's most historic winery, boasting the country's oldest Syrah and Chardonnay vines. The estate has been owned by the Buck family since the 1970s, and Peter Cowley has been head winemaker for over thirty years. These decades of skill and expertise shine through in the glass, and Te Mata has produced some show-stopping wines in 2015, with scores of up to 98+ points.

 

The Coleraine is the flagship of the range and the 2015 has received some great scores. New Zealand experts rate this particularly highly: Wine Orbit's Sam Kim awarded it 98 points, calling it "a wine of refinement and sophistication", and Raymond Chan rated it at 19.5 points, praising its “refined opulence”. Meanwhile, Australian critic Gary Walsh of Wine Front wrote: 

 

"Coleraine [2015] is a beautiful wine, and I’d venture that it’s New Zealand’s Grange equivalent, only it comes from one place, is much cheaper, and to my tastes, is significantly better and more interesting.

 

High praise indeed from an Aussie critic! Hot on the Coleraine’s heels come the 2015 Bullnose Syrah and 2015 Elston Chardonnay. Crafted from New Zealand’s oldest Syrah and Chardonnay vines, these are wines with considerable pedigree. Jancis Robinson singles the Bullnose out as "one of the first [wines] to show the potential for this variety", and Huon Hooke rates this “very impressive” Syrah at 97 points. Meanwhile, the equally compelling Elston is New Zealand's most iconic Chardonnay and a staple of top restaurant wine lists at home and abroad. 

 

We also have an allocation of the 2015 Awatea, a Cabernet-Merlot blend which Huon Hooke called “beautifully made and fresh as a daisy” and of which Gary Walsh wrote “love this”.
