Parker Estate's First Growth is only produced when the growing season shows exceptional fruit quality, and when a particular vintage is deemed to have ageing potential beyond 15 years.
The 2019 Parker First Growth Cabernet Sauvignon is another exceptional example of Coonawarra Cabernet, offering an aromatic nose of cassis, liquorice and subtle seaweed notes with smoky French oak. The densely layered blackcurrant, mint and leather on the palate combine with the elegant oak frame for a long and fine mouth-feel with fine suede-like tannin.
"94 Points. Deeply coloured, this bold and dense 2019 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon opens up with punchy aromas of red currant, black currant, red dessert earth and dried herbs with excellent fruit volume. A tight and compact palate follows - the fruit expressive and generous, the tannins firm and well formed, both coming together to deliver a long, composed finish. It’s classic Cabernet Sauvignon built for the long haul. 2030-2044."- Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot.
"94 Points. Harvested 16th April, gets 80% new French oak. Cherry dipped in chocolate, a slight roast red capsicum and blonde tobacco top note, in with some flowers, a little mint and sweet biscuit oak. It’s all cherry and red fruit, fine chalk dust tannin offers grip, acidity is balanced, and there’s a general succulence to the wine that’s very appealing. Finish has tannin, and maybe a little drying oak, but gee it’s a good Cabernet all up."- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
