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.. The goodly farms of brothers in arms»

There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»
The very first blocks of vine planted at Scotchmans Hill, are now in their fourth decade. Set aside for bottling as a range of limited release, single vineyard wines, they represent the first growth of viticulture from the fertile crescent of Port Phillip's western shore.

Grant Burge's Filsell property is planted to vines almost a hundred years of age, it is considered one of the finest vineyards in Barossa Valley and consistently yields vintages of great intensity and concentration. The lower cropping and limited harvest of these stately old vines translates into a Shiraz of opulence and remarkable balance. All individual pickings of fruit are separately crushed and vinified. Juices reach 28C at the onset of ferments before being cooled to 22C for a week. Batches are pumped over thrice daily before a gentle press and transfer to a selection of new and seasoned American oak barrels and French hogsheads for completion of ferments and twenty months maturation.
Deep, dark red with purple hues. Nose of dark chocolate, licorice and lifted raspberry fruit over hints of lavender. The palate is full of intense red berry fruits, ripe blackberries and rhubarb infused by lifted spice and rich vanilla, milk chocolate notes. Beautifully weighted with optimal balance between ripe, concentrated fruit flavours, sweet spices, tannins and acidity. A silky, well rounded fleshy fruit style, to partner with oven braises or mature cheddar.
