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.

A kaleidoscope of varietal fruit characters, assembled from exclusively hand picked grapes, off vines twenty five years of age, predominantly planted to clay and limestone soils, in a dozen of the finest precincts in and around Riquewihr. Grapes are picked into small tubs and treated to a gravity filled press, without any pumping or mechanical interventions, to retain the integrity of fruit. Musts are decanted for a few hours, followed by vinification in temperature controlled barrels or vats at 18°C to 24°C. Batches are racked and allowed to clarify by cold settling throughout the course of winter. Components are lightly filtered the following spring, bottled and aged under the Hugel cellars until release.
Bright pale green hues. Fresh, and deeply fragrant, blossom florals, jasmine and rose, almond and acacia, white peaches and pear, bitter orange and spice. Discreetly elegant and dry palate, soundly structured body and great length, lightly opulent, its finish is well scented, aromatic and crisp. Enjoy young, for its frank, aromatic bouquet, reflecting the diversity of each Alsace grape.
