Parker Coonawarra Estate Coonawarra Chardonnay 2015

14% abv

Fruit for the Coonawarra Series is predominately from the Williams Vineyard located approximately 5 minutes, by tractor, north of Parker Coonawarra Estate’s Abbey vineyard, with the balance sourced from a single vineyard on V&A Lane.Peach, apple, pear and citrus flavours give this both plenty of flavour and a deal of zesty/tangy drive. Oak lends a hand but keeps its influence light.

After a favourable growing season, fruit for this Chardonnay was harvested in mid-March before being fermented in new French oak barriques. 65% of these barrels went through malolactic fermentation before the alcohol ferment to tighten the structure of the wine and add complexity.

The V&A fruit was fermented separately in stainless steel to enhance the varietal characters of the finished wine, before the components were blended ahead of bottling in December.

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.
In the mid 1980’s, with help and advice from longtime friend Doug Balnaves, John and Faye Parker identified the best locations on Coonawarra’s Terra Rossa strip, which resulted in the purchase of land from the Abbey family, just north of the Penola township. In 1985 they planted their first vines using the Reynella Selection cuttings of Cabernet Sauvignon – the original cuttings from Bordeaux – sourced before Phylloxera decimated the vineyards in France in the late 1800’s.

In 2001, the purpose built maturation facility and cellar door building was completed. Made strikingly from Mt Gambier limestone and steel girders, the temperature-controlled facility stands tall amongst the Abbey vineyard and reflects John Parker’s uncompromising approach to grape growing and winemaking.
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, Langton’s Classification V for Excellence, and many high rating reviews by major wine media both within Australia and internationally.
