Description

An unusual vintage in Hawkes Bay, while total heat summation was approximately average, they had the hottest January and February since 1998. CEO Nicholas Buck feels this gives the wine more of a Super Tuscan feel, the 2016 being more approachable and charming than we're used to in this wine so crucially built for the long haul. Lots of intense red fruits are the feature, but of course all the Coleraine hallmarks of black olive, bay leaf, cedar, cassis and tobacco are there too, the tannin structure very fine and sophisticated.

Smells

A very expressive bouquet of cassis, plum, tobacco, bay leaf, violets and graphite.

Tastes

Viscous, powerful and concentrated with a wave of red and black cherry and berry fruits flooding the palate, the finely grained tannins mingling with hints of pencil shaving, olive tapenade and creme de cassis. Slightly atypical, style-wise, perhaps for the usually very Old World Coleraine, there is no doubting the exceptional quality on display. As usual, time will tell, but there is more pleasure to be had on release than in the past 3 years.
