West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture.

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.

Peter Schell knows from Barossa Rose, having spent vintages in Provence and several years at the illustrious Barossa Rose specialists, Turkey Flat. Schell finds the esoteric Cinsault to be an underrated grape, peerless as a blending component. It's lumpy, fat appearance on the vine means that it is often overlooked, yet it exudes delightful aromatics of potpourri, herbs and spice. Each individual parcel is separately handled and fermented, until the decision is made as to what and how much is included into the final wine. Parcels are separately vinified to traditional Rose making techniques, before assembling components into a classically provencal styled pink wine, elegant and ethereal, complex, fine and dry.
Light apricot pink colour. A complex and refined Mediterranean style with subtle, discreet aromatics. Musk, raspberry, pink rose petals, just ripened strawberries, quince and a hint of spice with slight savoury undertone. The palate is bone dry with flavours ranging through cherry and red currants, savouriness and a refreshing dryness from the acidity, displaying light, fine tannins.
