Parker Estate
Parker Coonawarra Estate wines have achieved an unmatched reputation both within Australia, and in all countries where fine wines are revered for integrity and consistently superb quality. Commercial constraints play no part in the development of Parker Coonawarra Estate wines. For many years close involvement of the late John Parker in the wine industry resulted in his desire to produce a fine wine from Australia?s premier wine district, and culminated in the release, in 1991, of the 1988 ?Terra Rossa First Growth?, which was subsequently judged as the 6th highest rated Bordeaux-Style in the 1991 International Wine Challenge in London. The estate is situated in the heart of Coonawarra and the 20ha of vineyards are planted in prime terra-rossa soil. Around 100 tonnes of grapes are crushed, consisting of 18ha of Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5ha of Merlot and 0.5ha of Petit Verdot. Peter Bissell is the winemaker at Parker Coonawarra Estate and was awarded the ?Qantas Australian Winemaker of the Year' award for 2005. Peter's philosophy is for ?An uncompromising commitment to quality producing fine wines from the Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra?.
