When John Parker came to Coonawarra in 1985, he brought an uncompromising approach to Cabernet Sauvignon that set a new quality
benchmark in the region. The Malbec component of this wine (15%) is sourced from outside the region and interlopes to similar effect. Its thick skins produce almost translucent magenta colours and incredibly bright fruit flavours, making it an ideal blending partner for the more structured Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon (85%).

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Fresh cherries, spice, chocolate cake, briar and caramel. Vibrant aromas with herbaceous hints, rhubarb, blackberry and some forest floor. Fresh juicy acid with red fruits on the mid palate and food fruit sweetness coming through in black cherry and berries. Black currant, mushroom and bramble savouriness, good length completes a well structured wine.
Vineyard Notes
Fruit for the 2019 Parker Interloper Cabernet Malbec was sourced from Coonawarra and a portion was grown by our Viticulturist Brett Williams. The Malbec is predominantly from John Lienert’s vineyard in the Barossa Valley with a small parcel coming from Coonawarra.
