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. Two generations later, the brothers Tom and Guy Adams took a similar leap of faith and branded their Metala fruit as Brothers In Arms. The quality of wine re established Metala as a vineyard of global significance and claimed George Mackay Trophy as Australia's foremost export. Cohorts of the stately Langhorne Creek style will be pleased by the palate weight, structure and seamlessness of Brothers.. The goodly farms of brothers in arms»

Brookland Valley is the only estate which controls vineyards over the entire length and breadth of Margaret River. Verse 1 are fashioned to express true regionality with elegance and intensity, eminently drinkable upon release. Shiraz is sourced from the most superlative vineyards operated by Margaret River's most experienced growers. After harvesting, bunches are destemmed into static fermenters, inoculated for vinification and routinely worked to extract flavours, colour and tannin, followed by a pressing at dryness. Components are seeded and treated to a malolactic fermentation before being matured for up to a year under a mix of new and prior use French oaks.
Deep red with youthful purple hues. Nicely fragrant spicey black fruits, combined with hints of licorice, black pepper and cloves, all supported by subtle oak aromas. Classy, elegant ribena and violet perfumes, dusty dried herb and leafy complexity held firmly together by lashings of nutmeg oak. A Shiraz that sits softer on the palate than most, abetted by firm tannins and persistence of flavour.
