The label ‘Favourite Son’ acknowledges that when it comes to wine, like sons: one can never choose a favourite. A vibrant addition to the Parker Coonawarra Estate family.
BACKGROUND: Favourite Son Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of two parcels of fruit from the Coonawarra region; the first is grown on our estate ‘Abbey’ vineyard while the other is sourced from the ‘Williams’ family vineyard, which is located a five minute tractor ride from Parker. Our Cabernet has benefited from a wonderful 2015 growing season. Following harvest – in April – the fruit was fermented in 20T static fermenters before being transferred to second and third fill French oak Hogsheads for 9 months maturation.
TASTING NOTES: Colour: Deep purple with red-brick hues. Aroma: Lifted aroma of blackcurrant, dark plum, subtle cedar and a hint of black olives. Palate: Rich dark fruit notes, milk chocolate and toasted pine all feature harmoniously together. Grippy, drying tannins lead into a moreish, lingering finish.
