Description
 
In the mid 1980’s John Parker identified the suitable locations on Coonawarra’s Terra Rossa strip, which resulted in the purchase of land just north of Penola. The vineyard was planted with Reynella Selection Cabernet Sauvignon – original cuttings on non-resistant rootstock, sourced from Bordeaux in the early 1800’s before phylloxera decimated France.

The 2018 95 Block (for the year it was planted) is a blend of 80.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19.5% Petit Verdot, aged 17 months in Taransaud barriques (73% new). Hints of violets appear on the nose, alongside notes of cedar, vanilla, cassis and blackberries. It's medium to full-bodied, fresh and vibrant, with plenty of dusty-velvety tannins on the palate, finishing long and a bit astringent—but not excessively so. It could use another couple of years of cellaring, but then should drink well for at least 10–15 years. Wine Advocate 93+
