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.
Sourced from the Williams family vineyard (just a short five minute tractor ride from the Parker Estate Cellar Door) fruit for this Chardonnay was picked in March 2017. Following harvest the fruit was fermented in stainless steel before remaining on lees for 6 months to boost flavour complexity and texture. Favourite Son Chardonnay is elegant and fruit driven, showcasing distinct varietal and regional notes.
The Colour is bright light straw with golden tints. On the nose, lifted aromas of nectarine and honeydew melon with a touch of spice and toasted cashews. On the palate; fresh lemon-citrus with a panna cotta like creamy texture, brioche and some mineral restraint. Finishes fresh and crisp.
Ideal with seafood or light poultry dishes.
