Parker Coonawarra Estate cabernet sauvignon

Colour: Rich crimson core with purple rim
Aroma: Lovely lifted nose – dark cherries, cassis, some herbs and rich cedar
Palate: Medium bodied palate housing powerful flavours from the ‘fruits of the forest’ spectrum. Some green leaf and earthy notes make a welcome addition as  well, before finishing with lingering dusty tannins.

Parker’s renaissance as a premium Aussie Cabernet producer is complete. My featured estate wine is very good indeed with superbly fresh, bright, cassis and mulberry fruit leading the way and it is perfectly balanced throughout. The finish is honed and refreshing but not overly tannic or dry which is incredible bearing in mind its youth. I sense that an awful lot of the following wine wells in the core of the Estate cuvée and this gives it a degree of flair and integrity rarely found in fifteen quid wines.

Mixed berries, mint, cassis, cedar and earthy bright fruit, excellent varietal definition and intense colour has been recorded.

A strong tannin vintage indicates wines which will continue to improve for the long term.
