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 our Abbey vineyard, with in 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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A perfumed nose of cassis and blackberry, with subtle notes of dark chocolate and smoky cedar aromas. The palate is medium bodied with rich complex dark cassis and blackberry fruit, persistent length of flavour, finishing with elegant firm tannins. A beautifully balanced and densely flavoured wine combining a powerful mouth feel with expression of fruit never overtaken by supporting oak and tannin structure.
