Parker Coonawarra Estate 2022 Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon

This offers awesome value when it comes to quality Coonawarra cabernets. Made from estate fruit from the Abbey vineyard on the red soils of the Terra Rossa strip over limestone - dirt that produces some of Australia's best cabernets. This has seen 100% French oak (50% new) but the quality fruit has soaked up the oak, resulting in a wine of excellent balance, impressive structure and immediate appeal. Pair this with a winter casserole, or maybe a classic steak and kidney pie. It's ready to enjoy right now, but some short-term cellaring sure wouldn't hurt. $34.
