Expert Reviews

Deep colour; the bouquet is full of black fruits, dark chocolate and an attractive, almost floral, perfume; the palate is dense and chewy with plenty of raw power and grip to conclude; a very serious offering for the price.Drink to 2016. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Wine Background

The Parson’s Nose is intended to offer some respite from the more serious religious connotations that are at times associated with wine brands. The name can be interpreted as the red bulbous nose of the old Parson, who is partial to more than their fair share of communion wine, or, the part of the chicken that the old Parson prefers.
