Pinot Grigio 2010
A refreshing, lighter-bodied wine with crisp flavours of green apple and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
At release the wine is a pale straw colour with a very subtle bronze tinge to the edge.
A fresh bouquet of subtle pear and apple fruit characters along with a hint of lemon zest.
The wine has a light-bodied palate with mouth-watering flavours of green apple, pear and a touch of lemon. There is a refreshing, tight acidity and a lovely clean finish. This is refreshing, racy and mouth watering…the perfect white wine to unwind with and whisk you away to those long, warm Summer days. Uncomplicated and immediately approachable the biggest problem will be deciding whether to share it!
This wine is made for immediate enjoyment.

Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio
Fresh, vibrant, fruit driven style with a sound but quite light and simple varietal palate. Good wine.
Peter Chapman, News Mail, December 2010
A lot of Chardonnay drinkers are now turning to the pinot grigio style and that has resulted in more and more coming onto the market. Wakefield has a nice drop in its 2010 vintage and once again they have kept the price right. It has melon, apple and pear flavours and is a crisp refreshing wine.

Attractive honeyed citrus fruit aromas and light, lingering, well balanced crunchy fruit flavours.
Winsor Dobbin, Ciao Magazine, December 2010
YouÆve got to love a fresh, lively white wine thatÆs full of flavour û particularly a well priced one. ItÆs crisp and refreshing with punchy apple, pear and watermelon flavours and lashings of lively acidity. ItÆs the perfect choice for a long, lazy summer afternoon in the backyard, or for taking to a BYO when you have no idea what youÆll be eating û although it would be particularly good, served well chilled, with fish and chips.

Best Wines of 2010, New releases
Delightful wine with loud flowery citrus sherbet-like aromas and very, very long, intense and powerful perfumed palate with spicy citrus flavours. Very pure, very nice. Good cellaring potential.
Sarah Davey, Drinks Trade, January 2011
With pinot grigio tipped as this summer's next big thing, the Taylor's Promised Land version doesn't disappoint. The wine displays delicious notes pear and apple on the nose, with a zesty and zingy lemon palate. This is a Wine for the punter who isn't looking for anything complicated; a refreshing drink-now style that may have drinkers coming back for more.

A fresh new drop or two
The Taylor family has released two new Promised Land white wines in time for summer. The Promised Land Moscato and Promised Land Pinot Grigio represent wine styles that are growing in popularity in Australia and are perfect for warm-weather drinking. The lower-alcohol Moscato displays aromas of mango and fruit salad with a hint of candy and rose water. The Pinot Grigio has a fresh bouquet of subtle pear and apple characteristics along with a hint of lemon zest.
