Parker Estate First Growth 2012 - Cabernet Sauvignon
WinemakingFollowing hand picking fruit for the First Growth was fermented in 8 tonne static fermenters with parcels undergoing extended maceration time to increase tannin structure and further the aging potential. After 35 days on skins the wine was pressed to a prestigious selection of new chateau Barriques, sourced from renowned Bordeaux cooperages Seguin Moreau and Taransaud.
Colour: A deep brooding red with a dense, dark core
Aroma: A complex nose showing cassis and dark fruits, briar, dark chocolate and fresh leather.
Palate: Powerful and intense expression of Coonawarra Cabernet in its first flush of youth. Tightly wound tannins support the fruit flavours, and promise a long life ahead
