Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera. Grove Estate's Flanders Fields is a decidedly Chardonnay dominant effervescent Cuvee, a true Methode.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»
Right around the time that Frank Potts was planting his nascent Bleasdale Vineyards during the 1850s, an eccentric Prussian named Herman Daenke established a homestead along the banks of Bremer River, which he called Metala. 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. Two generations later, the brothers Tom and Guy Adams took a similar leap of faith and branded their Metala fruit as Brothers In Arms. The quality of wine re established Metala as a vineyard of global significance and claimed George Mackay Trophy as Australia's foremost export. Cohorts of the stately Langhorne Creek style will be pleased by the palate weight, structure and seamlessness of Brothers.. The goodly farms of brothers in arms»

Gaze across the natural amphitheatre to the closely planted rows, these are some of the oldest vines in Pipers Brook. The fertile soils at Delamere had previously lent themselves to the successful establishment of a wonderfully diverse fruit orchard and market garden. It was the pioneering vision of Richard and Dallas Richardson that in 1981, saw the more elevated areas of the property planted to the noble cool climate cultivars of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. A harvest of Chardonnay clones Penfold 58 and I10V1, Pinot clones D5V12, D2V5 and MV6, are hand picked off fully mature vines, vinified and treated to full malolactic, followed by extended lees maturation, dégorge and dosage.
Lemon straw hue, an excellent, persistent mousse. Aromatic nose of biscuit and citrus, apples and mixed red berries. Creamy stonefruit and strawberry flavours, underlying brioche characters and earthy notes, hints of truffle and toast. A wine in superb balance, Chardonnay contributes great length, Pinit Noir adds full mid palate richness, a finely structured sparkling with racy acidity and exquisitely long, fine finish.
