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 In Arms, grown, crafted and bottled by a family who have been supplying..

Low yielding vines grown to a cool climate is what makes Giesen's wines so unique. Complex fruit aromas make them enjoyable whilst young, refreshing acidity gives the wines backbone for long aging in the bottle. Giesen aims for consistency of character and quality from vintage to vintage. Following harvest and pressing, the juices are processed under anaerobic conditions and coolly vinified in fermenters to preserve the fresh vibrant fruit inherent to Sauvignon Blanc, ensnaring the vibrant expressions of the vineyard and fruit. After inoculation with special yeasts and a temperature controlled fermentation, Giesen is stabilised and assembled into the finished wine, filtered and fined.
Pale yellow colour with green hues. The aroma is fresh and vibrant with a base of rich tropical fruit, dominated especially when young, by limes and lemongrass as well as fresh herbal notes. A lovely weight of fruit on the mid palate with flavours reminiscent of gooseberry and citrus, surrounded by a juicy, pure acidity giving the wine it's zesty exuberance. Charmingly laden with classic nettle flavours, a crisp, dry finish.
