Wine Enthusiast lavished this with 97 pts, and personally, I beg to differ...
As with this varietal, complexity of flavors and perfume come along for the ride. The initial experience on the nose is predominantly notes of Yuzu and tangerine peel. Palate is piercing and close to gunpowder dry. It’s tense and nervy, with a hint of salinity. From a style perspective, if you enjoy CB, this is for you. For me, this is searing, and needs fatty foods to help it relax. — 4 days ago
Fresh aroma. Good green flavor. Acidic. Good for summer with cool temperature. 2018 @700, Medoc - XH, 200825-200831 — a month ago
Was delicious with oysters, crab pasta and octopus at dinner but then after it was reopened a few days later wasn’t as good 😂 — a month ago
Generally regarded as New Zealand’s best expression of a left bank Bordeaux blend. This is a dense Ruby red in colour. Aromas of cedar, cassis, mint, leafy and a menthol note - generally classic left bank descriptors. Quite balanced - a medium plus weight palate - medium tannins and acid. Still a good future into the late 20’s or early 2030s. Sam Kim, who is a NZ wine taster and commentator described this wine on release as the greatest wine ever released in New Zealand which was a big call at the time. Bob Campbell MW said “Coleraine doesn’t get much better than this. “ — 18 days ago

Just really great with a goat Brie I picked up today.
Peaches, peaches, peaches for me in the bouquet.
Nice creamy / acidity balance. Really thought I would be underwhelmed by this label, but honestly this reminds me why I loved Sauvignon Blanc in the first place.
Just an all round, refreshing, lemongrass, melon, mango, pineapple, lychee flavor bomb. Classic. — 25 days ago
