Fodor's Review

This is one of New Zealand's top wineries, and Coleraine, a rich but elegant cabernet–merlot blend named after the much-photographed home of the owner, John Buck, is considered the archetypal Hawke's Bay red. Bullnose Syrah, Elston Chardonnay and Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc show similar restraint and balance. If there's any Zara Viognier open (it's made only in tiny quantities), try it—it's excellent. From Napier head south on Marine Parade through Clive and turn left at the Mangateretere School. Signs will then lead you to Te Mata Road and the estate.
