Te Mata

3 "Super Classic" wines (Bullnose Syrah, Coleraine, Elston Chardonnay) & 3 "Classic" wines - Michael Cooper's New Zealand Wines Buyer's Guide 2018

"Te Mata Estate is New Zealand’s oldest winery, dating from the early 1890’s. It is a New Zealand family owned winery – a true estate, specialising in grape growing and winemaking from its ten Hawke’s Bay vineyards. Acknowledged as one of only five icon wineries in New Zealand, Te Mata’s completely handmade wines are renowned as the country’s finest." - Te Mata

"Coleraine is one of New Zealand’s most important, age-worthy wines. Cabernet Sauvignon usually forms 60% of the blend with Merlot around 30% and Cabernet Franc the balance... Many critics consider it up there with the best Bordeaux blends in the world. Judging by the quality of recent vintages, it seems very unlikely that we will see this change any time soon." - Decanter Magazine, 2016
