This is a medium-bodied wine with a soft, round and gloriously fleshy palate. Delicious flavours of ripe plum, red berries abound with subtle coffee bean also evident.

Wine Colour
Deep red.

Wine Bouquet
Lifted aromas of spice and plum with subtle oak interplay.

Wine Palate
Fleshy and medium bodied with plum fruit flavours surrounded by a touch of vanilla and coffee that is rounded out by a smooth soft finish.
This is what I call and “everyone-everywhere” wine…the sort of wine that is just right to drink for “everyone-everywhere”!! Soft and smooth this is one of those wines that is so drinkable it screams “just one more glass”!

Cellaring Notes
Ready for immediate enjoyment however with careful cellaring will develop further to 2013, possibly longer.

    I have no idea which SA regions had such ideal weather conditions in '09 for merlot, but the consistency of generous, soft plum, cherry and red berry flavours is remarkable.

    James Halliday, 1003 Wines Under $20, November 2011


    The ever reliable quality of the Promised Land and the 80 Acres brands of Wakefield are the bottom tier, and are often discounted, making their value all the more obvious. It seems that all South Australian regions had good weather conditions in the 2009 for merlot, but the consistency of generous, soft plum, cherry and red berry flavours is remarkable. Don't delay.
