Winemaking Note

In 1891 the first Shiraz was planted at Metala. This limted release Metala is sourced from the best grapes of the vintage from the Metala vineyard, which for over a century have produced some of Australia's most distinguished wines.

The long, mild, dry 2004 season allowed fruit to slowly develop full ripeness while maintaining elegant tannins and good natural acidity. Fermentation was carried out in tradtional style 8 tonne open fermenters with the resulting wine then beling matured in new and seasoned French and Amercian oak barrels for 20 months.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Created from exceptional fruit from South Australia’s Langhorne Creek region, Metala is a stalwart of the Australian wine industry.

Winning the first ever Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1962, Metala has stood the test of time with its timeless label and exceptional, consistent quality with each vintage.

Consisting of two wines, the Metala ‘White Label” Shiraz Cabernet and Metala “Black Label” Original Plantings Shiraz are created by Winemaker Shavaughn Wells.

The White Label Metala has an excellent reputation for its cellaring potential – particularly considering its value and easy accessibility. The Black Label is an “old-school” classic Shiraz with rich fruit, supportive oak and the ability to age gracefully for many years.

The history of the Metala vineyard dates back to 1891 when founder George Formby planted 21 rows of Shiraz and 14 rows of Cabernet Sauvignon on his property on the banks of the Bremer River. Most of those original vines along with a further five acres of Shiraz planted in 1894, still bear fruit with the Shiraz forming the backbone of the extraordinary “Black Label” Metala Original Plantings. .
