Winery Details

    Since its first release in 1988, the name Parker Coonawarra has represented outstanding quality, longevity and elegance from the region. Based in the very southern end of the Terra Rossa strip, the wines have always embodied a fine, long-lived, classic style. The Hesketh family became the custodians of the vision for Parker in 2013, and have continued with these ideals. The wines offer an exceptional insight into why the Coonawarra region became famous for powerful yet delicious cabernet. This includes a Langton's classification for the flagship First Growth bottling.

Press Review

    Parker Coonawarra Estate 95 Block 2016

    A 75/25% blend of cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot, fermented for 14 days, plus maceration for a further 30 days, before spending 17 months in French barriques and hogsheads (68% new). A classy, full-bodied Bordeaux blend, petit verdot filling in any holes in the profile of the cabernet, resulting in a wine that won't take a backward step in the lifetime of most who buy it.

    Parker Coonawarra Estate 95 Block 2016

    Single block release. 74.4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25.6% Petit Verdot. Twenty-year-old vines. 90% new (French) oak for 17 months. Yes. Beautiful fruit. Dark and rich but not overdone. Cassis, leaf matter, coffeed oak, berries strapped to tannin. It’s pretty on the nose but the palate has a good, solid feel to it. Fine future ahead.

    Parker Coonawarra Estate 95 Block 2016

    A blend of Cabernet and Petit Verdot (74.4/25.6), 90% saw new French oak for 17 months. Sleek and plush, gorgeous fruit swims about with ease. Soft spices wrap themselves around black currant and cassis with deft dried herbs ticking away. The fruit lurches onto the mid-palate and just sticks. Oak can be seen but is not bashing you over the head. A lick of fruit sweetness is evident but there is a just a moreish and delicious factor to it. A keeper and then some, happiness awaits.
