2017 Parker Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml


In stock


Tasting Notes:

Aromas of plums and spice with tobacco and mint undertones. Dried fruit and figs. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a tangy finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Tasting Notes:

The majority of fruit sourced from the estate Abbey Vineyard, open 10t fermenters for tannin and colour extraction and closed fermenters for aromatic intention, 45% of the wine spending 14 months in French oak. OK, so this is the business end of the market, but you wonder why this wine only commands $24. It's a fine cabernet with Coonawarra stamped on its DNA.

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.
