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.

A blend of Cabernet and Petit Verdot (74.4/25.6), 90% saw new French oak for 17 months.

Sleek and plush, gorgeous fruit swims about with ease. Soft spices wrap themselves around black currant and cassis with deft dried herbs ticking away. The fruit lurches onto the mid-palate and just sticks. Oak can be seen but is not bashing you over the head. A lick of fruit sweetness is evident but there is a just a moreish and delicious factor to it. A keeper and then some, happiness awaits.
