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 Australians with the most memorable vintages for six generations...

Mission Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Hawkes Bay New Zealand
From fruit picked off the middle and upper terraces of Marlborough's Blind River vineyard, the higher the blocks, the deeper the slope, as poorer soils toward the summit yield thinner crops for a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc of amazing minerality. The flavours are consequently very intense, a revitalizing nose of grapefruits and herb, florals and passionfruit aromas. A palate of exceptional weight and wonderful textures before a long, lingering finish of mouthwatering juicy fruit and suave savouryness, all supported by refined mineral acidity.
Available by the dozen
