Coleraine derives its name from the Coleraine vineyard, home of John & Wendy Buck of Te Mata Estate. John’s late grandfather came from Coleraine in Northern Ireland and the name has been maintained through the family properties to the wine.

The first Coleraine was made from the 1982 vintage and created an instant sensation within New Zealand for unsurpassed quality. Originally a single vineyard wine, from 1989 Coleraine has been an assemblage of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc wines produced from thirty plots within Te Mata Estate’s nine Hawke’s Bay vineyards. Coleraine’s reputation for quality has extended, from the original 1982 release, over a line of vintages unbroken except for the cool 1992 and 1993 years. When Coleraine is well stored it develops and intensifies in bottle for 15-20 years from harvest.

Expert Reviews

An iconic Bordeaux-style blend. A dense savoury red with a fantastic long and layered texture plus berry, floral and herb characters. Vibrant wine with great potential. Although accessible now, the wine promises to age at east as gracefully as the best of its predecessors in the past 30 years. An elegant, powerful red that thoroughly deserves its cult status Best Buys - Bob Campbell MW Gourmet Traveller Wine (JUN/JUL 2012)

Winery Tasting Notes


Coleraine ’10 has a youthful dark crimson colour.


The wine displays Coleraine’s gorgeous floral aromas, together with macerated blackberries woven with graphite and thyme.


The palate is pure and very precise, building in intensity, with a long fine tannin structure providing great length.


A blend of 58% cabernet sauvignon, 36% merlot, and 6% cabernet franc, it will continue to develop in bottle and provide great enjoyment up to 15 years from harvest.
