Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia
Number 6 is a reference to the sixth generation of Adams family to grow wine grapes on the historic Metala property at Langhorne Creek. Arthur Formby planted twenty one rows of Shiraz here in 1891 and a further 5½ acres in 1894, much of which is still producing outstanding quality fruit. The wines of Metala are legendary and represent many of Langhorne Creek's most memorable vintages. An intense but balanced Shiraz wine of delicious, gently spiced plum flavours and regional eucalypt minty notes, supported by fine, velvet tannins.
Deep dark red/ plum in colour. Gentle black pepper and spice support lifted red currant and raspberry aromas along with subtle darker fruits, blackcurrant, plums and notes of mint. Medium bodied in structure, the palate displays a balance of regional sweet red fruits, pepper/ spice and plush, soft tannins to achieve a wine of length and complexity.
