93pointsTe Mata 2017 Coleraine Red (Hawke's Bay)

#95 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2019
Return to List

The latest vintage of Te Mata's top red is a wine for the cellar. It offers cassis, black licorice, bay leaf, ground black pepper and graphite notes on the nose. The palate brings chalky tight-grained tannins that knot firmly around the tongue. But all is in place for this wine to develop into an elegant and classy drop. Just give it time. Drink 2021–3034 and likely beyond. Christina Pickard
