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..

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A..

Tim Burvill draws his insiration from the crisp Sancerre wines of France. His straight forward, low intervention winemaking techniques translate into solid Chardonnay wines with bold varietal definition and intense fruit. The same careful approach is taken in the vineyard. Grapes are harvested in the cool of the night just as the tropical flavours begin to appear. A completely wild, indigenous yeast vinification serves to enhance the aromatics, ferments are run very cool to retain valuable volatiles. A component of large format oak ferments reduce acid harshness while contributing complexity. Five months of lees stirring compliments the mid palate texture and contributes a rich nutty taste.
Pale green hue. Pungent tropical and melon fruit laced with exotic dashes of kiwi and cashew. Stylish and elegant, the vibrant fruit drenches the tastebuds with a wave of intense pineapple, peaches and nectarine. The mid palate is textural with a bounty of creamy, mealy complexity derived from extended lees stirring. A balanced acid finish, crisp, lingering on notes of clean tangerine and lemon freshness.
