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.

Andrew Mitchell has worked vintages in Europe to deepen his understanding of the world's great wines. His experiences continue to contribute to the development and refinement of the Mitchell style. Careful land management is nothing new to the Mitchells, who have long known that dry grown fruit makes better wine. Careful soil management, conservative old style farm and biodynamic practices, are essential to a healthy harvest. Cabernet Sauvignon is picked at several different stages of ripeness to capture the full array of varietal fruit characters. The finished wine is matured two full years in a selection of tightly grained French oak barriques, followed by assemblage and an extended term of bottle age before release.
Deep dark red colour. A completely mesmerising bouquet, enthusiastic loganberry and bramble perfumes are met by the vanilla caramel richness of new French oak. The palate is full of luscious black, red and blue berry flavours, characteristic Clare Valley violets and mint, a solidly structured Cabernet supported by a firm backbone of fine grained tannins. A wine to decant and to breathe for optimal enjoyment.
