2016 Parker Coonawarra Estate Shiraz

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml

HK$220.00

Tasting Notes:

Made using purchased fruit from the warmer north end of the GI, the 2016 Shiraz offers cranberry and cherry notes, then adds hints of tar and earth. It's medium to full-bodied and silky in texture, picking up dark chocolate notes on a finish that feels like powdered cocoa.

Tasting Notes:

A spicy cabernet, showing lots of dried herbs, such as thyme and oregano, amidst a foreground of fresh brambleberries. Medium-bodied with firm and fine tannins, some good blue fruit and a fresh finish. Drink in 2020.

Tasting Notes:

Balance is the single word descriptor of this wine. Mulberry and blackberry fruit has a carpet of soft tannins and an old, but comfortable, armchair of oak.

description Producer information Professional reviews

John and Faye Parker established Parker Coonawarra Estate in 1985 after a career-long interest in the region. Today, the privately owned Parker Coonawarra Estate is committed to John Parker’s standards of excellence, and producing the most faithful expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the celebrated Terra Rossa soils of the Coonawarra growing region. In the mid 1980’s, with help and advice from longtime friend Doug Balnaves, John and Faye Parker identified the best locations on Coonawarra’s Terra Rossa strip, which resulted in the purchase of land from the Abbey family, just north of the Penola township. In 1985 they planted their first vines using the Reynella Selection cuttings of Cabernet Sauvignon - the original cuttings from Bordeaux - sourced before Phylloxera decimated the vineyards in France in the late 1800’s. The winery’s first release of the 1988 vintage of First Growth was met with outstanding success, winning the Penfold Hyland Trophy in Perth.
