Parker Coonawarra Estate First Growth 2015


All class. Coonawarra Cabernet at its best. There's lots of primary fruit on show here mind you. Still a pup, this is a wine made for later, not now. Despite its youth, it's easy to see where this is heading.



Roasted peppers, blackcurrant leaf, cassis and blackberries. Acid is firm and taut waiting for time to do its thing. Black olive and aniseed add savoury appeal through the mouth. Tannins are shaped to deliver powdery feels, that is evident, but for now, they're drying and chalky drawing saliva from the mouth. A super Cabernet release. Watch this with interest.

Drink 2023 until whenever you want.
