New Releases

The Sauvignon Blanc 2010 – Honor was subject to unusual weather conditions in late summer 2010 which meant the grapes were picked riper than normal, resulting in intense flavours of melon and passionfruit. The addition of a small percentage of Semillon provides a hint of zesty lime and sometime in French oak barriques imparts a mild texture. A refreshing, well balanced wine with a subtle, silky persistence, perfect for matching with Seafood. Alc 11.2 %.  Drink now until 2013.

The Signature Pinot Gris 2010 has aromas of ripe pear and green apple. The palate is a complex blend of apple and citrus with a hint of wet stone. The wine has excellent length and displays a crisp, dry finish. Alc 12.5%.  Drink now until 2014.
Merlot is a traditional blending partner to Cabernet Sauvignon but makes a satisfying wine in its own right. Bluemetal Merlot 2008 is medium- to dark red in colour. The nose has aromas of berries and plums with just a trace of spiciness. The wine has a well-rounded palate, with dark plum, fruitcake and red berry flavours and supple, supporting tannins. Though immediately appealing, it will repay one or two years of cellaring.  Alc 12.5%. Drink now until 2013.

"We are really pleased with these new releases." Says Louise Horsley, manager of Bluemetal Vineyard.  " We are now in our eight vintage and seeing the wines evolve under our Bluemetal label has been rewarding and exciting.   Being so small, our wines vary with the different weather conditions each year brings but I believe that we are constantly improving our quality and continue to make wines that are different, interesting and award winning wines."
