Matthew Jukes, Top 100 Wines, May 2014
2013 Wakefield, Promised Land Shiraz / Cabernet Sauvignon, SA ú8 This is a magnificent, inexpensive wine and it has all of the hallmarks of a TGAR hero. There is a stunning, juicy plum core coupled with a heavenly crema aroma you get off the top of a barista made espresso. The finish is refreshing and tart which balances the exuberant fruit perfectly. Aside from the slightly dated packaging this is one of the finest, inexpensive red wines of the year. Decant it and people will inevitably think you've spent twenty quid. It just goes to show that this talented outfit can not only make wines like the The Visionary and St Andrews (q.v.), but it can also perform miracles for the masses too.
Adelaide Advertiser, July 2014
This all-Aussie blend of shiraz and cabernet (and vice versa) works wonders in the bargain end of the spectrum, one variety supporting the other, two heads better than one, here all about the harmony of different fruit notes, plum foremost, blackberry next, with a sweet juicy palate and medium-weighted mouth feel. Good value.
