Parker `First Growth` Cabernet 1993 (1x 750ml), Coonawarra. Cork closure.

Description:

With superb fruit resources, being planted on the famed Terra Rossa strip in Coonawarra, and a top notch winemaker in Peter Bissell (winemaker at Balnaves), Parker Coonawarra Estate has a track record of making excellent wines, especially their flagship wines, all under the 'Terra Rossa' descriptor. The 'First Growth' is their nod to Bordeaux, with a Cabernet-dominant wine made using the traditional Bordeaux methodology, including rigourous fruit selection - in years where the fruit is not regarded as up to standard, the wine is simply not made.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

This exceptional wine from the Parker Coonawarra Estate Vineyards is made from the finest grapes grown in the famed Terra Rossa souls on the limestones of Coonawarra.

Only the highest standards of wine making practices have been employed, using the classic variety of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, to produce a wine of excellent quality, style and definition.

The vintage is limited to 2750 cases and matured in new French and American small oak casks.

Winery Profile

2005 Terra Rossa First Growth is Parker Coonawarra Estate’s flagship wine representing the finest expression of the estates winemaking skills. First Growth is made in only the finest seasons and when the vintage is deemed to have the potential to age for 15 years.

This wine is from a 42-acre cabernet sauvignon vineyard, with minor plantings of merlot and petit verdot. It is made with extended maceration and maturation in new and used French oak for 20-24 months. This intense, gorgeously scented and rich wine is typified by mocha, expresso, blackcurrant and truffle aromas, underlying savoury new oak and fine-grained, dense tannins.

Each vintage small quantities of the best fruit is selected for the Terra Rossa First Growth. If in any one year the grapes do not reach the high standard set, then no Terra Rossa First Growth is made, as was the case in 1992, 1995, 1997, 2002 & 2003 . In those years the wine released was under the Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon label.
