Parker Coonawarra Estate Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
The famous Parker Coonawarra Estate has created many brilliant wines over the years and the style has remained consistent producing some of Coonawarra’s most flavour-packed wines, even crowd pleasers. But that does not mean they are soft and supple – they are heavy and structural wines, normally with a good dose of oak.
The 2018 Terra Rossa vintage, which was a good year, is a BIG and dense wine. It is deeply coloured with aromas of fruit pastille, choc-mint and cassis with great purity and power. It is then dry and full-bodied, almost chewy on the palate, with sweet fruit well matched by tannins, acid and oak. It is the whole package all well balanced in a structural style that needs a little time to soften but this delicious wine will age and age well.
