2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
As with previous vintages our Coonawarra Series Cabernet is made up from fruit sourced predominantly from our vitculturalist Brett Williams’ vineyard located on the railway line just north of the Parker Estate Cellars. Several parcels have also come from our estate ‘Abbey’ vineyard to complete the blend.
Another mild summer and consequent long-vintage has produced from elegant Cabernet from the 2015 season. Bright fruit, excellent varietal definition and intense colour has been recorded. A strong tannin vintage indicates wines which will continue to improve for the long term.
94 POINTS - TONY KEYS
Clean cabernet nose of blackcurrant and slight green leaf, flows across the palate in a measured way but not missing any pleasure points on the journey. The finish is just a tad short but no issue, its good Coonawarra cabernet and a remarkable price $24, 94 points
2014 COONAWARRA SERIES CABERNET REVIEWS
93+ POINTS - KIM BREBACH
A rich, smooth red, similar in style to the Shiraz, with cassis and dark berries replacing pepper and spice. Good length and fine-grained tannins add a touch of class. The wine opened up and softened nicely over a couple of days, which suggests it will improve for a couple of years or three.
92 POINTS - MIKE BENNIE
A serious-feeling Cabernet Sauvignon that shifts up from medium weight into fuller figured, smells of dark potent black berries and currants, pencil shavings, twiggy oak, ash and salt bush. In the palate, thick set yet ripples with dusty tannins. It’s a good release.
