BEAT THE PRICE RISE ON THIS HAWKE'S BAY CLASSIC
Redmetal are one of our favourite Hawkes Bay producers and over the years we have developed a monster following for their graceful red wines. This merlot dominant blend has always been our best seller and the 2019 is another excellent release. Middleweight in the classical sense, this is serious, thoughtful wine at a sensible price - a soft, approachable and food-friendly style from owner / winemaker Grant Edmonds.
We advertised the 2018 vintage of this wine however it has since rolled to the superior 2019 vintage. In true Redmetal style, the 2019 is soft, generous and over-delivers on this price point with a bit of magic coming from the excellent 2019 growing season.
Michael Cooper writes "Drinking well now this sturdy red shows good complexity, with strong. ripe, plummy, slightly spicy and nutty flavours that are rich and smooth. Fine value."
The winery writes "Ripe black plum flavours with hints of chocolate and licorice along with fine, soft tannins and a touch of oak. A classic Merlot based Hawkes Bay red from a very warm vintage that will reward cellaring for a decade or more."
