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 goodly farms of brothers in arms»
Just a few kilometres north of Lowburn, near the windswept shores of frigid Lake Dunstan, atop the parched and laborious terroirs of Central Otago, a high country merino stud between the Amisfield and Parkburn streams was sown to vineyards two decades ago. Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir. The challenging terraces which spiral around the fractious knolls of Amisfield Vineyard, sire a sensational range of wines defined by their affable excellence, sound structure and..

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard.. Sociable soils make for healthy vine»

Sevenhill Inigo Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Clare Valley South Australia
Sevenhill are a quiet achiever, softly spoken artificers of Clare Valley's finest. Riesling develops so much charm as it grows in the vineyard, that if it's picked at the right time, the wine is virtually made. Riesling's desire to wear her heart on her sleeve still means that she can be sensitive, so the vinification must be compassionate. Amongst the propitious terroirs of Sevenhill, vines yield fruit of refined minerality and savoury edge, the richer, red soils are higher in nutrients, all the team have to do is protect and maintain the character of fruit.

Riesling is planted on four separate vineyard blocks, each with different soils, a combination of silty stone/slate and richer, red loam. The silty stone and slate soils are older and less fertile, they offer ideal chemistry for wine grapes. The vines produce leaner characters, the wines show minerality and a more savoury edge. The richer, red soils are higher in nutrients, so the vines don't have to battle quite so hard. All grapes are gently pressed, taking great care not to allow oxygen to steal the flavour. Juices are kept very cool, inoculated by choice yeasts and fermented to dryness at temperatures around 12C. Individual vineyard blocks are all kept separate until completion and the final assemblage.
Pale straw colour with a tinge of green. Highly aromatic, waxy orange blossom predominant, nose displays the character and charm of pure, elegant Riesling. The palate is tight and lean, showing prominent citrus flavours followed by a minerally, dry finish, long and crisp.
