Critic Notes

A classically structured, ageworthy Cabernet blend with refined opulence. Mar 2017, www.raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz

Score: 19.5-/20Raymond Chan

The wine has everything in place, and nothing out of place. A wine of symmetry and harmony, and of refinement and sophistication. It is striking and restrained at the same time, and delivers youthful charm of classic young Bordeaux, offering concentration, purity and complexity all in this gracious package that is Coleraine 2015. Engaging aromas of cassis, dark plum, violet, cigar and roasted almond lead to a palate that is perfectly proportioned and detailed with focus and structure, wonderfully enhanced by delectable fruit flavours and elegant oak infusion. Seamless and persistent with a promise to develop magnificently. Drink 2022-2035 (March 2017) www.wineorbit.com

Coleraine 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. Mar 2017, www.winefront.com.au

Score: 96-/100Wine Front

Deep red/purple colour and a ripe berry aroma which recalls blueberry, blackberry and raspberry. A fine, balanced but persuasive tannin grip, and excellent persistence. Very stylish wine with a big future. A top vintage. Mar 2017, www.huonhooke.com

Score: 96-/100Huon Hooke
