Each vintage, small parcels of unusually intense, high quality fruit are produced from some sub-sections of our Estate vineyard. These special components are vinified separately with great care, before becoming integral parts of the final blend of Parker Estate's First Growth - our flagship wine. From only the best vintages, certain parcels with exceptional character are presented separately as a limited release, to intrigue and delight under this simple label.
Following the exceptional 2016 vintage, the 95 Block sub-section of our estate 'Abbey' vineyard was selected for displaying unique fruit characters. Cabernet Sauvignon predominant this blend also comprises 25.6% Petit Verdot from the same block.
Similarly to its 95 Block partner, the Scarlett Block Cabernet Sauvignon stood out following a superb 2018 vintage and a portion was kept seperate by our winemakers to be bottled under its own label.
S.B.W. #2 - Super Luigi - is made up of 60% Ebenezer Sangiovese and 40% Coonawarra Cabernet; an affectionate play on the 'Super Tuscan' wines of Italy which see non-indigenous grapes - often Bordeaux varieties - included in their blends.
