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.

The climate at Whitlands is ideal for retaining the type of acidity so essential to this style of wine. The property sits at eight hundred metres above sea level in the sub alpine area at the top end of the King Valley. Fruit is hand picked and whole bunch pressed through an air bag. Grapes are treated gently to yield a scant five hundred litres of juice per tonne, minimising the impact of harsher compounds from skins. Base wines are treated to full malolactic for complexity. The secondary ferments are deliberately extended to produce a fine bead, then rested an extravagant five years on lees to develop further complexity. Patricia is then disgorged and liqueured, to true Methode traditionelle.
Light straw colour with fine persistent bead. Llifted nose with a rich yeast autolysis character and hints of citrus and apple. The palate is full bodied, complex and rich with prominent lemon/ lime flavours and a bready character which lingers. The mouthfeel is creamy and elegant before a crisp, dry finish and with refreshing acidity. This complex and rich sparkling wine deserves to be accompanied by the finest faire, hors d'oeuvres or scallops, souffle or brie.
