Home to the Oldest Accredited Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in the world, Brothers in Arms encapsulates Langhorne Creek's pedigree for great red wines that convey balance, structure and texture.The first planted vines at "Metala" in 1891 included the above mentioned Cabernet as well as the region's oldest Shiraz - two acres of each variety which still flourish today and form the backbone of our flagship wines. Brothers in Arms continue to produce wines that are true to the estate and true to the Langhorne Creek region.
CHRISTINA PICKARD - WINE ENTHUSIAST
There's currently a slight volatility to this wine that serves to lift the drying red raspberry and plum fruit. Alongside it sits chocolate and dried herbal notes and a dusty earth quality that evokes the dry, sunbaked South Aussie soils. The palate is a little less cohesive. While the fruit is tangy and the warm, dusty earth character evocative, the oak is a little overpowering, weighing things down somewhat. Nevertheless, this is a solid wine from a historic winery.
JANE FAULKNER - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
Flavours of blackberries, mint-chocolate biscuits and new leather. Plenty of oomph to this yet just shy of full-bodied; fresh and ready now.
