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’ is what we all aspire to be – youthful and rich! Sourced from the Williams family vineyard (just a short five minute tractor ride from the Parker Estate Cellar Door) fruit for this Chardonnay was picked in March 2016. Following harvest the fruit was fermented in stainless steel before remaining on lees for 6 months to boost flavour complexity and texture. Favourite Son Chardonnay is elegant and fruit driven, showcasing distinct varietal and regional notes.
TASTING NOTES: Colour: Bright light straw with golden tints. Aroma: Lifted aromas of nectarine and honeydew melon with a touch of spice and toasted cashews. Palate: Fresh lemon-citrus with a panna cotta like creamy texture, brioche and some mineral restraint. Finishes fresh and crisp.
