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 First Growth 2016

    A cabernet with a lengthy history of excellence. It is from a single vineyard planted in '85. The vines are fully mature, and the blackcurrant fruit revels in the generous proportion of new French oak allocated to it every year.

    Parker Coonawarra Estate First Growth 2016

    Less herbal than the 2015, the 2016 First Growth shows more pure cassis and plum aromas and flavors. It's medium to full-bodied, with a touch of creaminess on the mid-palate, which turns velvety on the long finish. This strong effort shows real harmony, elegance and class, relatively unmarked by its 18 months in new French oak.
