Parker Estate was built from the ground up in the right way, with the intention of producing precisely this style of wine. Established in 1985 by an old industry salt, quality winemaking was the only priority and commercial constraints played no part in the development. Integral to the style and structure of First Growth is the seven day warm fermentation and four to six weeks of maceration on skins. Individual parcels are then matured eighteen months in a selection of mostly new, Seguin Moreau Chateau and Taransaud Chateau, 228 litres French oak barriques. The final assemblage is returned to oak before egg fining and bottling.
 
Mid to deep red purple hue. Highly complex nose, showing dark berry fruit and forest floor characters, tobacco and spice notes within a lifted smoky French oak frame. Intense palate with rich ripe black fruit, liquorice notes and firm structured savoury tannins. Medium bodied but with very intense fruit and good perfume, a magnificently proportioned Cabernet Merlot accord.

Vinified from fruit picked off fully mature vines which produce a limited yield of 1½ tonnes/ acre, planted to the Parker Estate's Terra rossa over limestone Coonawarra property. Integral to the style and quality of the finished wine are unique soils and mesoclimes, so favourable to the noble cepage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Following a warm fermentation, a little over half the grapes are treated to a long maceration of thirty days, the balance receive a shorter ten day maceration. Parcels are matured in a combination of new and prior use 228 litre French oak barriques for twenty two months. The final wine is assembled and returned to oak before an egg white fining and bottling.
 
Deep red tint. Intense deep dark fruit with some dark chocolate, prunes and charry vanillan and cofee oak aromas. The palate is rich and dense with a solid core of dark fruit running along the entire length. Impressively dense and solid structure, but also showing some faint leafy Cabernet notes typical of southern Coonawarra vineyards. To be decanted before service and savoured alongside the finest meats.

Parker Estate

Parker Coonawarra Estate was established in 1985 on the rich Terra Rossa soil over limestone of Coonawarra and carries Cabernet Sauvignon as the predominant variety with minor plantings of Merlot and Petit Verdot. Commercial constraints played no part in the development of Parker Coonawarra Estate. John Parker, whose many years involvement in the wine industry resulted in a desire to produce a premium wine from Australia's premier red wine district culminated with the release of the 1988 Terra Rossa First Growth in 1991.

Coonawarra did not happen by chance. Nor did it evolve by trial and error. It was founded a century ago, and was based on sound scientific principles after the assessment of extensive feasibility studies. The founder was John Riddoch. He had come to Australia from Scotland during the Gold Rush and subsequently acquired an extensive pastoral run in the South East of South Australia. His motives for establishing Coonawarra were primarily humanitarian. As he said at the time, he aimed to provide employment, to encourage immigration and to stimulate closer settlement by sub-dividing his large estate.

Since then, Coonawarra has passed through three historical periods. The first was early settlement, when the early settlers accepted the challenge of Riddoch's vision, established the district, and generally prospered until the time of the First World War. They were led by Joseph Darwent. Then came the dark age of the Great Depression and the two World Wars. During this period Riddoch's original Cellars were converted into a distillery, and the Redman family alone were able to maintain a continuous tradition of table wine production.

Samuel Wynn eventually recognised the quality of these wines, and initiated the renaissance of the district by purchasing the old Riddoch Cellars in 1951. This third historical period witnessed the appreciation by many other investors of the truly great attributes of this small, yet magic, tract of terra rossa soil. During the half century since then, the combined efforts of many outstanding grapegrowers and talented winemakers have ensured that Coonawarra has produced wine of a truly unique style and quality. These wines are now generally recognised as Australia's best, and amongst the greatest in the world.

It has been an exciting time for Parker Coonawarra Estate, also celebrating the Terra Rossa First Growth’s Outstanding classification in Langton’s. The Langton’s 2005 Classification notes the First Growth as a "brilliantly seductive wine with unbelievable depth of fruit, balance and structure." Parker Estate celebrated further victory at the 2005 Winewise Small Vignerons Awards where the 2003 Parker Estate Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon won the trophy for best Cabernet Sauvignon. Competition was very strong among 1318 entries received from 329 entrants.
