    If you have joined the long queue of regular Shiraz drinkers and don't want to pay the earth for a good regular drop take a look at this one from the ever reliable Wakefield. It has the great Shiraz characteristics with a hint of spice followed with nice plum aromas. Put a few these in the rack.

    Promised Land Shiraz 200987/100

    Jeremy Pringle, Western Australian, April 2011

    Wine Will Eat Itself
    There's a real mouthful of shiraz in here. It's a big earthy shiraz with stacks of savoury, dusty fruit, ripe tannins and a layer of creamy oak. It's a warm easy drink, ideal for the barbie.

  • Promised Land Shiraz 200988/100

    James Halliday, 1001 Wines Under $20, November 2011


    A no-frills wine that has occasionally had considerable success in the overseas wine shows, and has been made to a consistent style and quality for a number of years. It is a medium-bodied wine towards the upper end of expectation at this price point, with red and black fruits, a touch of spice and minimal tannins.

    Good colour; a medium-bodied wine at the upper end of expectation at this price point, with pleasant red and black fruits, a touch of spice and minimal tannins.
