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 goodly farms of brothers in arms»

Olivers Taranga Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Established 1841, the McLaren Vale Taranga vineyards are still owned by the founding Oliver family. Even more remarkably, Taranga wines are today crafted by a sixth generation of the original winemaker. For most of the twentieth century, Oliver Taranga sold their precious yields to other wineries, much of it was destined for the nation's most esteemed labels and memorable flagship vintages. Since 1994, the Olivers have been reserving the pick of their low yielding, old vine grapes for bottling under the Oliver Taranga label.

Taranga was the name given to the southern section of the Oliver property in 1841. Sheep and cattle were raised, perfect for viticulture, vineyards were planted and the family prospered. Generations later, Don Oliver sold fruit to Penfolds, where it became one of the primary components to the mighty Grange. Oliver has since taken up the task of processing the pick of his own crop. Produced from vines up to fifty years of age, cropped at three tons of fruit per acre, aged in a mixture of seasoned and new French and American oak barrels for two years. Winemaker Corrina Rayment is McLaren Vale dynasty, daughter of Colin Rayment from the neighbouring heritage Kay Brothers Amery vineyards.
