“5 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, January 2022 (2020 Vintage)
“I can’t overstate how monumentally excellent 2020 is. Sublime doesn’t do it justice, but flawless and spellbinding come close. If you're a Coleraine collector, it's a must-have.
If you're new to Coleraine investment, there's no better time to start.”
100 Wine Orbit: "This is solidly built yet fine and flawless with cassis, scent floral, olive, cake spice and stylish oak aromas. The powerfully concentrated palate offers dazzling clarity of fruit purity as well as astonishing complexity, brilliantly structured, by perfect pitched chalky tannins. Beautifully layered with formidable depth and seductive structure, making this rendition of Coleraine undeniably spellbinding. 2030 to 2050" February 2022
98+ Gary Walsh: "Unbelievably good. Young, but the potential is overwhelmingly potent. Floral, nutty, intense small-berried fruit, cedar, anise and sweet herb. Tight, medium-bodied, so concentrated, but light too, ultra-mineral, fresh, all the gravel and tense cabernet feel, but with perfume unlocked: so flagrant and fragrant. The length is superb. I’m taken aback by the beauty and essence-like nature of this wine. My precious. Easily one of the best wines I’ve tasted in the last decade." January 2022
98 Bob Campbell MW: "A blend of cabernet sauvignon 57%, merlot 36% and cabernet franc 7%. A deeply-tinted, almost inky wine with layers of sumptuous fruit and savoury characters, including cassis, red rose, dark chocolate, hedgerow, anise and nutty oak. A generously proportioned, youthful red that is already surprisingly accessible but promises to age gracefully." January 2022
97 Huon Hooke: "Very deep, bold, bright purple/red colour, the aromas similarly impressive for their concentration and vibrancy. The wine is super concentrated and loaded with drying, savoury tannins that add a smidgen of bitterness that helps cleanse the aftertaste, which is formidably long. A sensational cabernet blend, gorgeously flavoured and perfumed, profound and lingering. It has the intensity and structure to age long-term. The patient will be handsomely rewarded." December 2021
