Redmetal Vineyards is the side project of Sileni’s chief winemaker Grant Edmonds. Grant’s got a tonne of experience (30 plus years!) and has worked with the likes of Villa Maria and Esk as well as a stint over in St Emillon, France. Redmetal Vineyards Merlot Cabernet Franc

He’s a bit batty about Merlot so it’s little surprise that one of Redmetal’s favourite styles is his Merlot Cabernet Franc blend. Hand crafted using premium fruit from the free-draining red metal gravels of the Bridge Pa Triangle district of Hawke’s Bay.

Grant says about his 2020 Merlot Cabernet Franc that it’s all “Deeply coloured, with ripe plum and black fruit flavours along with a deft seasoning of oak and soft tannins. A blend of 98% Merlot lifted with a touch of Cabernet Franc and Syrah for lifted floral aromatics. Soft, food friendly and hugely drinkable now, but with the weight and concentration to cellar for 5-8 years if you must..”

A real food friendly style, try it with your Sunday lamb roast! Drink now or cellar up until 2028.
