Brothers In Arms are the essence of Langhorne Creek, representing five generations of grape growing tradition. Vines at Metala were established in 1891, for many decades, the source of fruit to some of Australia's most memorable vintages. The rich soils and favourable climes at Langhorne Creek encourage grapes to ripen slowly and completely, developing exemplary varietal flavours with healthy acids and rich tannins. Cabernet and Shiraz are vinified in open top fermenters and treated to a regimen of manual pumpovers before gentle pressing and racking. The finished wine is matured eighteen months in a selection of two and three year old, exclusively French oak barriques.
Crimson, garnet red colour. Regional dust and minty earthiness comes through on the nose. Fruit aromas of currants, blackberry and sweet cherries mixed in with some gentle rustic French oak. Lovely flavours of bramble forest fruits and stewed rhubarb well integrated with firm tannins and supportive oak. The Shiraz element provides upfront sweetness and spice, Cabernet comes through a little later, extending the palate with complex, herbal tannins and long, lingering finish. Gripping and brooding.
