Redmetal ‘Basket Press’ Merlot/Franc 2009

06-Nov-2011
Grant and Sue Edmonds have been slowly bringing the Redmetal wines back home to be more vineyard expressive. For a while, there was a degree of interchange with the wines of Sileni Estates next-door, where Grant has his ‘full-time' job as chief winemaker, and the Redmetal wines incorporated fruit from outside the home site, being made at the Sileni Estate facility. The Redmetal wines are now made on-site at their own winery, with Nigel Davies as the hands-on winemaker and viticulturist. Sure, any differences will be subtle at first, but it is the right move to ensure that the wines will be distinctive and individual. Here's the latest ‘Basket Press' red from the outstanding, warm and dry 2009 vintage. www.redmetalvineyards.co.nz
