Expert Reviews

Full red-purple; a very rich, full-bodied shiraz with a chorus of red and black fruits, prune and plum. A little too warm for comfort. James Halliday, Rating 89, 11th July 2013

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep crimson in colour.

Aroma

Ripe plums, blackcurrants and pepper on the nose with characteristic Langhorne Creek eucalyptol and spice. Hints of leather with the elegance of a touch of age adds a nice complexity with subtle French oak pencil box characters.

Palate

A big generous palate of blackcurrant fruits and almost powdery tannins create a plush, velvety texture. Lingering acidity retains freshness, suggesting good ageing potential.

Food Matching

Serve with a massive chunk of meat, seared over the open flame and damn near raw in the middle. No salad! A grilled mushroom with thyme is a must.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Brothers in Arms has a history of family grape growing spanning five generations, with Guy Adams' family purchasing the "Metala" property 125 years ago and planting the first vines - Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, in 1891.

Langhorne Creek in South Australia lies on the shores of Lake Alexandrina just a few miles from the Southern Ocean and is without question red wine country.

Guy and his wife Liz head up a dedicated team that are proud to produce wines of balance, structure and texture that are true to the Estate and true to the Langhorne Creek region.
