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...

Parker Estate was built from the ground up in the right way, with the intention of producing precisely this style of wine. Established in 1985 by an old industry salt, quality winemaking was the only priority and commercial constraints played no part in the development. Integral to the style and structure of First Growth is the seven day warm fermentation and four to six weeks of maceration on skins. Individual parcels are then matured eighteen months in a selection of mostly new, Seguin Moreau Chateau and Taransaud Chateau, 228 litres French oak barriques. The final assemblage is returned to oak before egg fining and bottling.
Mid to deep red purple hue. Highly complex nose, showing dark berry fruit and forest floor characters, tobacco and spice notes within a lifted smoky French oak frame. Intense palate with rich ripe black fruit, liquorice notes and firm structured savoury tannins. Medium bodied but with very intense fruit and good perfume, a magnificently proportioned Cabernet Merlot accord.
