Parker First Growth Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Sold out
Shipping calculator

    First Growth is only produced when the growing season produces exceptional fruit quality, and when a particular vintage is deemed to have ageing potential beyond 15 years. Traditionally, First Growth is predominantly made using Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from their Abbey vineyard, with some vintages containing a small portion of Merlot and/or Petit Verdot. It is a wine that proudly reflects the sub-region it is grown in, and is humbled by critical reviews including Langton's 'Excellent' Classification V, a 5-star winery rating from James Halliday and unfailing benchmark scores from international wine critics.

    A fine, ageworthy Coonawarra cabernet. It’s not overly dense but it’s well powered, tannic, juicy with fruit and complex enough – as a young wine – to suggest that it will have much to offer with age. Jubey blackcurrant and boysenberry, mint, chocolate, smoky oak with tobacco, peppercorn/eucalypt notes whispering over the top. It’ not a heavy wine, it’s almost light on its feet, but it’s satisfying and beautifully well set up, and structured. Oak sits fractionally separate from the fruit but it’s still comparatively early days. - Campbell Mattison, Wine Front
