Beechworth attracts the most artisanal winemakers, the region's rich mineral soils and parched, undulating terrains, breed wines of vigorous flavour, crystalline textures and boney savoury tannins.

Right around the time that Frank Potts was planting his nascent Bleasdale Vineyards during the 1850s, an eccentric Prussian named Herman Daenke established a homestead along the banks of Bremer River, which he called Metala. The site was planted to viticulture by Arthur Formby in 1891 and became one of Langhorne Creek's most productive vineyards, it continues to supply fruit for a number of prestigious national brands. Legendary winemaker Brian Dolan took the radical step of bottling Metala under its own label in 1959 and won the inaugural Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1962.

Particular attention is paid to selection of grapes in the vineyard, only perfect bunches are considered. Harvest is done completely by hand, picking by single hectare plots, according to the vigor of vines. Sangiovese arrives slightly earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc. Great care is applied to ferments and extractions, employing delestage and pumpovers to maintain varietal characters. Vinifications are carried out at temperatures between 27C and 31C, the active musts show great complexity. Upon completion, the wines are racked into new oak barrels for malolactic, assemblage and twelve months maturation, followed by racking, bottling and a further year in bottle.
Intense ruby red colour. Fruity aromas in perfect harmony with the vanilla and chocolate notes of oak. Powerful on the palate with a firm tannic texture, yet remaining smooth before an intense aftertaste of ripe blackberries and cherry fruit, a seemingly endless finish.
