This wine is Yum. No other word for it.

Aromas inundate the nose, a full array of berries, blackberry, black currant. Earthy, dirty notes provide a canvas for all that fruit. A rich Bordeaux style, this is what Bordeaux is supposed to taste like (not saying it doesn't). The palate is rich oozing with blackberries, blueberries, black olives, dark plums and chewy tannins. It goes on forever and that makes me happy.

They call this the "baby" Coleraine, but I think it can stand on its own.


Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc in the capable hands of one of NZ’s best wineries.

Perfumed with violet, raspberry, blackcurrant, lead pencil, a smattering of dried herb and paprika. It’s medium-bodied, but dense and full of flavour, fine-boned, fresh and crisp, a purple juiciness through it, and a cool feel, along with fine tightly packed emery tannin. The length is both precise and long. Beautiful svelte Cabernet of grace and class.
