|Region:||Clare Valley & McLaren Vale|
The luscious elegance of the Clare Valley fruit marries superbly with the slightly peppery fruit from McLaren Vale.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release, the wine has a deep, rich crimson colour with a vibrant purple hue to the edges.
There are lifted aromas of red berry and cherry fruit along with subtle black olive and spice.
This is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavours of ripe red berry fruit, violets and attractive oak characters of roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. Overall, the wine is well balanced with complex, well-integrated tannins providing the palate with an intense, persistent length.
Will reward careful cellaring in ideal conditions to 2024, possibly beyond.

Australia Rediscovers its Mojo
Dark purple. Ripe blackberry and plum aromas show a jammy quality and a hint of fruitcake. Lush, palate-coating, slightly warm black and blue fruit flavors pick up smoke and spice nuances with aeration. Shows serious depth and power and finishes sweet and long, with repeating smokiness and a trace of dusty tannins.

Brambly, spicy and juicy wild blueberry and blackberry flavors have focus and firm tannins, mingling with black tea and floral details. Drink now through 2028.

2014 Wakefield Jaraman Shiraz
Woody, spicy, lip-smacking and serving up plenty of postprandial coffee.

Wakefield Jaraman Shiraz 2014
Black fleshy plums on the nose with a pleasant zing of acidity mid-palate for lots of dishes from tangy meat sauces to grilled meats. More black fruit and mouth-filling roundness. A consistently good producer at fair prices for the quality. Highly recommended. This Australian red wine is a regional blend of Shiraz grapes of about two-thirds Clare Valley and one-third McLaren Vale regions. The wine was partially cold-soaked for 4 days, then aged in 100% new American oak barrels for 11 months. Deeply concentrated and flavoured.
Ronn Weigand, Restaurant Wine, September 2016
Superb Shiraz! It is ripe and rich in flavor, fleshy in texture, full bodied, and very long and well balanced on the palate, with a lingering finish, tasting of blackberry, black licorice, black pepper, loganberry, toast, caramel, and tobacco. 55% Clare Valley, 45% McLaren Vale. Aged 11 months in American oak casks and French oak barrels.
