Redmetal Basket Press is a legendary Hawkes Bay wine - with a cult following.
Only produced in exceptional vintages (and 2014 was exceptional). Basket Press is vinted from Redmetal’s finest Merlot and Cabernet Franc fruit. And winemaker Grant Edmonds has pulled out all the stops with the 2014.
The winery writes "Rich ripe dark fruit and licorice flavours with fine, soft tannins and a hint of aromatic oak are the hallmarks of this ripe and concentrated wine. A sophisticated red from a superb vintage that will cellar comfortably for 8-10 years."
This is seriously special stuff. Think Black Doris plums. Think chocolate coated cherries. Think Christmas spice. Then stop thinking and grab a six pack.
