Parterre is un unwavering focus on quality has seen our flagship Parterre range described by experts and critics as everything from “totally delicious and stylish” to “right at the top of the region’s offering.”Hand-made with reference to traditional process and exceptional modern winemaking skill using fruit selected from the best performing parcels of the vineyard, these wines are matured in the highest quality French oak barrels coopered specifically for the estate.
Blackberry and boysenberry, sage and mint, fetching floral perfume, baking spice and vanilla custard oak. It’s medium-bodied with pleasing density of fruit, plenty of fine grained graphite tannin, cool acidity, so svelte and composed, with a long pencilly finish. Needs a little more time for the oak to integrate, but the feel of it, its balance and shape, mark it out as an excellent wine.

86/6/4/3/1% cabernet sauvignon/petit verdot/malbec/merlot/cabernet franc. Reaching heights of near perfection, '18 was a vintage responsible for wines just like this. Supple intensity, concentration of flavour without a gram of weight, the length of flavour possessed only by very healthy, perfectly ripe and balanced grapes. What a gloriously seamless wine, continuing the proud legacy of Parterre.
