Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from a total of seven separate and unique Cabernet Sauvignon blocks on the Parker Estate ‘Abbey’ vineyard. A powerful Red of earthiness, lavish spicy oak seasoning and dark, red fruited appeal. It''s ''classic'' Coonawarra in its depth and slightly rugged, dark fruited flavours and texture, with a tight, firm finish that says ''best over the next decade or so''. Shows a heartiness and savouriness at once.

John and Faye Parker established Parker Coonawarra Estate in 1985 after a career-long interest in the region. Today, the privately owned Parker Coonawarra Estate is committed to John Parker’s standards of excellence, and producing the most faithful expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the celebrated Terra Rossa soils of the Coonawarra growing region. 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.
