Tasting Notes

The wine has a seductive, lifted aroma characterised by plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry fruits along with subtle chocolate and a touch of oak derived spice. The palate is plump & generous with ripe fruit characters of plum and blackberry. Mocha coffee and subtle spice from oak maturation balance the fruit flavours. The wine is medium to full-bodied with a fleshy mid-palate & supple tannin structure. It is a well balanced wine with great texture, good length and enjoyable fruit on the finish.

The Producer

Wakefield Wines

​When the Taylor family established their wine business back in 1969, they decided to create a proper 'old world' style estate in the Clare Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz were the very first wines released and are the heart and soul of the business. In the language of wine, an estate means that the vineyards and winery are in the same location. The inspiration for this came from the great producers of Bordeaux and in particular Chateaux Mouton Rothschild who famously were the first to also bottle their wines on the estate. This approach; of having ultimate control over the vineyards, winery and even bottling of the wines appealed to the Taylor family. These days the wines are still crafted and bottled on the estate although not all of the fruit is grown there. Mainly because of the popularity of the wines, but also if fruit from other areas is of a higher quality. It's this commitment to the way our wines are crafted that has earned Taylors an enviable reputation and contributed to their continued success.
