First Village

First Village Cabernet Merlot 2018

The fruit for the Cabernet and Merlot is sourced from our own vineyards in Bethany and neighboring vineyards along the Barossa foothills. The fruit picked from our Bethany Vineyards is from old vines of up to 40 years old which are very low yielding and produce fruit of great intensity and flavour. 


A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (43%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%) is a classic Bordeaux combinaton so enjoyed by wine lovers all over the world. The fruit for this wine was predominantly sourced from estate grown vineyards in the village of Bethany, the heart of Bethany Wines. The resulting wine shows bright fruit characters combined with a fresh and persistent framework of fine grained tannins. It demonstrates the finesses and elegance possible with grapes grown on the Eastern edge of the Barossa Ranges.
