Te Mata Coleraine 2018 $115 (5 stars)

Sweet fruits, raspberry and cocoa, quite a bit of cabernet franc in the blend and it shows beautifully, lithe and lovely and lifted there’s a great impression, tobacco, saddle leather, pomegranate, richness and the tannins are finely tuned yet tight and fabulously furry – yet the fruit is seductive and saucy, so perfumed and punchy, it’s a glorious thing. Delicious astringency and skin tannins make for a lip smacking experience now, but it’ll age gracefully and reward 20+ yrs in the cellar
