Brothers in Arms is very much a family concern. As the owners, Guy & Liz Adams are involved in all aspects of the business on a daily basis. It’s not surprising really as they live on the vineyard only 2 minutes down the road to the winery.
The homestead is the hub of everything as well as being the domain of their 2 children, Myles & Emily. They are the 6th Generation to live at Metala and are the inspiration for many things, including the No.6 label.
“As we continue to be the custodians of the Metala property our vision moving forward is to respect the lessons learned in the past while seeking out innovative approaches to our future.”
Having control of the wines from the soil to the bottle gives Guy & Liz great satisfaction. They understand how each parcel of fruit came to be and where certain distinct characteristics may be found. This is invaluable when it comes to blending the wines, building each layer of texture and flavour to create styles which they believe best showcase our estate and the Langhorne Creek region.
The most notable thing about Langhorne Creek is the ability to grow premium quality grapes with a minimal amount of fuss. The climate is warm enough that we don’t have to endure some of the cool climate headaches such as devastating frosts, labour intensive canopy management or inclement weather associated with late harvest dates.
Sourched from the Metala Vineyards, Langhorne Creek. Harvested 22 March – 27 March 2019. 100% single estate, 4 individual plantings.
18 months in tank with a small percentage of the wine spending a short time in French oak.
Deep crimson and magenta in colour. Intense aromas of blackberry, plum with complex vanilla and spice. The palate is well rounded, yet spicy with gentle, almost dusty tannins adding a welcome structure and long finish.
Slow cooked roast lamb with jus and all the trimmings.
Up to 5 years.
