Parker Estate Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon 6pk 2021
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.
Parker Estate Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
For whatever reason, I seem to taste a lot of Cabernet from Margaret River and the Yarra Valley, but very little from Coonawarra.
Good Cabernet here. All the good Coonawarra things on show. Blackcurrant, aniseed, lively perfume, appropriate cedar and baking spice oak. It delivers flavour, plenty of black and red fruit, mint and chocolate, a little tobacco, grainy tannin grip, a sweetness of fruit with savoury oak, acidity is a little juicy and tangy, but the finish is long and satisfying. It’s a very good wine, and gee, the price is more than fair.

Parker Coonawarra Estate Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
Matured in French oak (40% new) for 12 months. There's good power here, good weight, with warm-hearted blackcurrant flavours as the drivers but with saltbush, garden mint and toasted cedar notes pushing through. It pushes ripeness without overstepping the mark to any serious degree, and it feels mouth-filling and confident throughout.
