Special Price $32.00 Regular Price $45.00
The original Langhorne Creek plantings of Shiraz from 1891 form the backbone and majority of this Shiraz from the brilliant 2021 vintage from Metala. The fruit is rich, the flavours complex and long, showing off the vine age as chocolate, cherries, pepper, blueberries and more cavort long before being wrapped up in quality, cedary oak. As good as the previous vintage was, this is better.

What started out as a small vineyard planted back in 1891 is now regarded as one of Australia’s true legacy vineyards. William Harper Formby purchased the original land now known as Metala in 1882 and he and his son Arthur planted the first vines in 1891. Fourteen rows of Cabernet Sauvignon and twenty-one rows of Shiraz grapes were planted with a further two hectares were planted in 1894. These two plantings combined, still produce on average, over two tonnes of extremely high-quality fruit per acre per vintage. The fifth and sixth generations, led by Guy and Liz Adams are the current custodians.
