Grown on the Kidman and Wetherall vineyards of Parker Estate. It only sees French oak. Medium-bodied but well fruited and textured. Plummy aroma with bold, bright, youthful fruit flavour. Gorgeous nuances of sarsaparilla, red currants and snappy sour cherries. Plenty of body and mouth-coating tannins which linger strongly on the aftertaste.

The winery’s first release of the 1988 vintage of First Growth was met with outstanding success, winning the Penfold Hyland Trophy in Perth. It was also judged the 6th highest rated Bordeaux-Style in the 1991 International Wine Challenge in London. For over a quarter of a century, Parker Estate has achieved numerous wine show medals, trophies and accolades, including a Five Star rating by James Halliday and Langton’s Classification V for Excellence.
