Parker Coonawarra Estate Interloper continues a long-held tradition. When John Parker came to Coonawarra in 1985, he brought an uncompromising approach to Cabernet Sauvignon that set a new quality benchmark in the region.

The Malbec component of this wine (15%) is sourced from outside the region and interlopes to similar effect. Its thick skins produce magenta colours and incredibly bright fruit flavours. This makes it an ideal blending partner for the more structured Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon (85%).

Tasting Notes:
Fresh cherries, spice, chocolate cake, briar and caramel. Vibrant aromas with herbaceous hints, rhubarb, blackberry and some forest floor. Fresh juicy acid with red fruits on the mid palate and food fruit sweetness coming through in black cherry and berries. Black currant, mushroom and bramble savouriness, good length completes a well structured wine.
Vineyard Notes:
Fruit for the Parker Coonawarra Estate Interloper Cabernet Malbec was sourced locally and a portion was grown by our Viticulturist Brett Williams. The Malbec is predominantly from John Lienert’s vineyard in the Barossa Valley with a small parcel coming from Coonawarra.
Winemaker Notes:
The blend for this wine is approximately 85% Cabernet, 15% Malbec. Following fermentation, the blend was treated to 20 months oak maturation in second-fill French oak barrels. The Malbec component of this wine is sourced from outside the region and interlopes to similar effect.
