Metala Vineyards & Semper Fidelis

2012 Semper Fidelis Shiraz

Semper Fidelis is our Icon wine made from a single barrel selected from only the most outstanding Vintages. 

Presented in a beautiful single bottle box it is the perfect gift for someone who loves a good wine story.

Deep and rich red with a bright hue, this wine reflects complex aromas of dark fruits such as ripe blood plums and cassis, menthol and star anise. It is earthy and spicy.

A seamless marriage of the 1891 Ancestor Shiraz vines and the elegance of French oak puncheons has helped create this unique and alluring wine.  

While spicy on the palate there are fascinating hints of redwood, peppercorn and mint which build to a lengthy finish with lingering flavours on the back palate.
