Parker Estate 2020 First Growth

Award Winner

First Growth is only crafted in years when the growing season produces exceptional fruit quality, and when a particular vintage is deemed to have ageing potential beyond 15 years.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from our ‘Abbey’ vineyard, First Growth Langton’s Classified as "Excellent" and acclaimed by Australian and international critics.

The fruit for our 2020 First Growth was fermented in a 9T closed-static- fermenter for 40 days (fermentation lasting 12 days before the parcels were topped and sealed for a further 28 day). This extended maceration encourages tannin structure and increases ageing potential. After time on skins the wine was pressed to 80% new oak barriques sourced from renowned cooperages Seguin Moreau, D’Aquitaine, Louis Latour and Francois Freres. The wine was then matured in oak for 18 months to create fine grained tannins and produce a tightly structured wine with the potential to improve with correct cellaring in excess of 20 years.
