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 Interloper Cabernet Malbec 2016

    An 85/15% blend, matured for 22 months in second-fill French barrels. This is no shrinking violet, full-bodied and armed to the back teeth, but provides great value at its price. Once you have it in your possession, you have to decide between the next barbecue or the next major anniversary for someone (say) 10 years down the track.

    Parker Coonawarra Estate Interloper Cabernet Malbec 2016

    85/15 blend of (Coonawarra) Cabernet Sauvignon and (Barossa Valley) malbec. No new oak was used; it all went into used French oak for 22 months.

    It’s a well made red. Everything here is neatly (and well) presented. Balance is key. Redcurrant, clove, earth and cocoa flavours run crisply through the palate before finishing with a satisfying burst. It’s pretty good full stop; even better when you factor in the modest cost.

    Parker Coonawarra Estate Interloper Cabernet Malbec 2016

    Leafy, foresty and berry aromas, some tomato bush and some tamarillo - probably from the malbec. The tannins are rich and chewy, coating the tongue and lasting long on the finish. It has a certain robustness and slightly rustic grip.
