Parker Coonawarra Estate 95 Block 2016


I first had a look at this during the Coonawarra Roadshow event which recently hit every capital city in Australia. There's no better way to check out the region than having a significant number of the region's wineries arriving in your home town. Avail yourself when they swing by next year and taste cracking wines like this.

Yalumba Tri-Centenary Grenache 2015

Drinking Rosés like this make you feel fancy. Well, it made me feel that way at least. Classy stuff.

Redman Wines The Redman 2008

Sourced from 30-year-old vineyards, this is made to reflect the true essence of Coonawarra. Only 200 dozen produced.

Chalmers Rosato 2018

The real test for this sample was Sunday lunch. I tasted the wine on Saturday afternoon and shared the remainder on the following day. It went in seconds...

You are not left wondering after taking a look at this Syrah from Levantine Hill. There's so much going on.
