From one of the great sites in the Langhorne Creek you get this amazing Malbec. Better still, it has a bit of bottle age and has found that perfect balance between primary fruit and secondary characters. Put a steak on the bbq and you will be happy.
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.
You are most likely to find Malbec in Argentina rather than its native South West France. A minor player in Bordeaux and the major grape in the underappreciated Cahors. It has long been the star of Argentina. Intense, tannic, dark fruited wines with nice acidity. Perfect match for a country that consumes a lot of meat.
