Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973.

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.

Antinori Toscana Santa Cristina IGT CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Shiraz Tuscany Italy
One of the oldest winemaking firms in the world, Antinori first commenced production at Tuscany and Florence circa 1385. The majority of Antinori vineyards are located in Chianti Classico. With the passage of the 1984 DOCG laws, Chianti Classico grapes became so complex and rich, that they needed more ageing than the fresh and fruit driven Santa Cristina could bear, to maintain its character and style. Santa Cristina moved away from the Chianti Classico designation, by including components of Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah to the firmness of Sangiovese.

The wines of Villa Antinori originate exclusively from the Antinori Estates in Tuscany. Only those grapes born and raised, ripened, harvested and vinified in the estate cellars are labelled Villa Antinori. Fruit is sourced from vines which have developed maturity, elegance and a distinctive Tuscan personality. Following a destemming and soft crush, the Sangiovese and Merlot grapes are treated to seven days maceration in fermenters, during which time the wine completes primary ferments at temperatures no higher than 25C. Parcels are racked and treated to malolactic, followed by several months ageing under the Santa Cristina cellars at Cortona. The finished wine is bottled after a light clarification and filtration.
Ruby red colour with purple hues. Complex aromas of currants and blackberry, cedar and spice, violets and mince. Vibrant ripe fruit bouquets with a floral complexity. Well structured and harmonious with seasoned savoury elements, the introduction of Merlot to Sangiovese has brought softness and new fruit. Immediately approachable uponn release, a generous fruit driven Tuscan with judiciously drying finish to accompany traditional Italian cuisine and all full flavoured faire.
