Quote on Neil Pendock ...a most
remarkable wine.

Neil Pendock


First Verse 2012

As a winemaker, seeing the last case of a vintage leave the cellar doors I am often fraught with mixed emotions. Faint shadows of sadness when closing the chapter on a vintage; thrill of uncorking a new vintage, the anxiety of facing pallets needing to be introduced and accepted by the market, but undoubtedly the sense of anticipation and excitement a new vintage brings.

The 2012 First Verse is one I am proud of. After a warm, sunny harvest, the full flavours have developed exquisite balance and poise. I was fortunate to source grapes from the finest vineyards, ensuring a fine synchronicity of flavours, tastes and aromas.

The wine comprises 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot and 6% Malbec. After spending 20 months in oak, this complex yet elegant Bordeaux blend, has new dimensions to tempt your senses.

First Verse offers a fine rhythm of flavours, a harmonious synergy of its elements and well-balanced tannins.
