5 Stars - Raymond Chan - "Very dark, deep, purple-hued black-red colour, a little lighter on rim. The nose is full and voluminous with powerful and deeply concentrated aromas of ripe black berry and plum fruits. Lifted and aromatic new oak nuances and spice elements are harmoniously entwined with the fruit. Medium-full bodied, densely packed ripe fruit flavours of black and dark red berryfruit and plums are complexed by nuances of earthy minerals, iron-earth, sweet oak and subtle spice elements. The fruit is youthfully sweet, forming a concentrated and rich core, and is supported by plenty of fine-grained tannin extraction, proving a firm, fulsome mouthfeel. The wine has presence and carries through to a very long, black-fruited finish. This is a concentrated, well-structured Merlot with ripe black fruit flavours that will develop over the next 8-10+ years. Serve with roast beef, lamb and venison, and with hard cheeses.

93 points - Bob Campbell - "An elegant, fruity Merlot with plum, red berry, bramble, spice and a suggestion of floral / violet flavours. Quite a dense, powerful red wine from an excellent vintage. It's approachable now, but should age well."
Black plum, licorice and dark chocolate define this rich and mouthfilling wine from an outstanding vintage. Powerful, balanced and beautifully structured, it will amply repay cellaring.
Made by acclaimed and long serving winemaker, Grant Edmonds, Redmetal wines are superior, handcrafted wines created to express the characters of the Bridge Pa triangle. The range is truly sensational and excellent examples of Hawkes Bay reds.
