A soft and fleshy Shiraz with a lively palate of juicy red berry fruits, plum and spice. These fresh characteristics play alongside subtle chocolate and savoury characters from the oak maturation. A more elegant style of Australian Shiraz, try pairing with a chicken and leek pie.

    Description

    Wakefield is a third generation family wine business and was founded in 1969 by Bill Taylor who was inspired by his love for the red wines of Bordeaux’s Medoc region. He was drawn to South Australia’s Clare Valley where his first 178 hectare vineyard was planted on the banks of the Wakefield River close to the village of Auburn. The vineyard was carefully chosen to benefit from red-brown loam over limestone soils (also known as Terra Rossa) and the Clare Valley’s cool climate which were known to be ideal for the cultivation of Cabernet Sauvignon vines. In 1973 Bill Taylor tentatively entered his inaugural Cabernet Sauvignon vintage in Royal Adelaide Wine Show and was delighted to win the prestigious Montgomery Trophy for best red wine in show. Since then Wakefield wines have gone on to win more than 2000 medals and awards in major international wine competitions.

    A soft and fleshy Shiraz with a lively palate of juicy red berry fruits, plum and spice. These fresh characteristics play alongside subtle chocolate and savoury characters from the oak maturation. A more elegant style of Australian Shiraz, try pairing with a chicken and leek pie.

      Aroma characterised by plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry, a bit of chocolate. It has a well balanced structure with great texture
