Parker Coonawarra Estate

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.

Parker Coonawarra Estate, terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon, Australia

There is more finesse with Parker wines of late. This beauty is right up there with its atypical, pleasing aromas of blackberry and boysenberries, a sprinkle of spice, freshly rolled tobacco, dried mint and earth. The palate is very neatly contained, textured tannins balanced; a long finish. 
Beautiful expression of Coonawarra Cabernet in a strong year. Powerful fruit drive and ripe Cabernet flavours with fine supportive chalky tannins. Regal and powerful, yet elegant structurally
