Brothers in Arms comes from one of the great sites in the Langhorne Creek. At 5 years of age, this wine is just coming out of its shell. Enjoy the richness of fruit and full body now. Or wait for another 3-10 years to see how it evolves.
The story of Brothers in Arms is about the custodianship of a special block of land: Metala. In 1891 the first vines were planted on Metala. The original plantings of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are still producing grapes. The vineyard expanded and evolved but at its core is the old blocks that make this one of the best sites in Australia.
The region that has done so much, for so many but never truly recognised for its efforts. Dry, hot and disease free. Langhorne Creek makes lovely reds. Although sometimes they get used to blend into and bolster bigger brand wines. Whites are just finding their feet too. There are a handful of excellent quality producers to watch.
The noble variety of Bordeaux’s left bank. Firm tannins, a streak of acidity and punctuated by flavours of cassis, violets, spice and leather. The best examples can age for the long term. Often blending with Merlot, Cabernet Franc or Shiraz will fix the hole Cabernet has in its middle palate.
