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.

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Weingut Egon Müller makes Riesling and nothing but. Through the influences of nature and nurture, Riesling is a singular variety which has been bred over millennia to lend itself to an almost innumerable permutations of fruit character and fragrance. Egon Muller focuses on collating the most prized parcels from his own vineyards and from the most distinguished growers in the Rhineland. Many of these sites were established by ancient Romans and are grown to rootstock which can be traced back centuries. The most prized clones, planted to the finest blocks which have enjoyed perfect growing conditions, are set aside each year to provide the quality of fruit which can be vinified into the rich and luscious Auslese.
Pale gold hue. White fruit aromas and floral bouquet, citrus, peaches and pear. A rich palate with bright citrus acid balancing the sweetness of fruit flavours. The wine displays stony minerality, hints of acacia and lilac, grilled exotic fruit, sweet stone fruits and bracing acidity all combined in perfect harmony. The finish is very long, with generous, lingering complexity.
