Henschke's Lenswood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills

Saturday, 9 April 2011

Metala, White Label Shiraz Cabernet (2006)

Langhorne Creek, SA
14.5%, screwcap, non organic, $12

Deep purple, the bouquet was of vibrant fruit with spice and white pepper. The palate was filled with impressive fruit intensity, showing vibrant blackberry and plum. This wine showed a superb balance between fruit, oak, acid and tannin. This wine is drinking well now, much better than a year ago. I was most impressed by this 'week day' wine. Great value when you find it on sale (as I did). 93
