Redmetal Vineyards Merlot Cabernet Franc 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 16-Nov-2021
Deep, ruby-red, moderately full, lighter on edge. The nose is full and elegantly presented, aromas of violet, interweave cassis, plum, blackcurrant leaf, unfolding barrel spice and a hint of minerals. Full-bodied, succulent aromas of cassis, plum melded with enticing scent of violet and blackcurrant leaf, and a touch of cloves. The flavours are well-proportioned and elegantly presented. Supple, fine-grained tannins provide a lightly firm grip, linger with violet and herbaceous leaf element to a sustained finish. This is a well-balanced Merlot, Cabernet Franc blend with succulent fruit, floral and herbaceous details and a fine-grained palate. Match with beef wellington and meat pie over the next 5 years. Fruit from Bridge Pa Triangle, 99% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, destemmed, fermented in tank to 14% alc, gone through MLF in tank then part matured in oak barrels. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Nov 2021 RRP $25
