Modern Home, May 2014
The fun, fruit-driven style of Wakefield Promised Land Shiraz makes this contemporary wine a must try. A soft and fleshy medium-bodied wine, the Shiraz has a lively palette of red-berry fruits, plum and spice, and the oak maturation brings subtle chocolate and savoury flavours to the fore.
Lisa Perrotti Brown, The Wine Advocate, May 2014
Medium garnet-purple in color and showing some reduction to begin, with rubbery notes eventually giving way to a core of blackberry and pepper aromas accented by a hint of damp loam, the medium-bodied 2013 Promised Land Shiraz continues on to offer a decent core of black fruit flavors and rounded tannins before finishing with pepper notes of medium persistence. Drink it now through 2016.

I really loved this Australian shiraz described as full of rich varietal fruit and a vibrant spiciness. For me, a hug of a winter warmer. ItÆs a soft, velvety shiraz, deep, dark and warming with vanilla clouds above a black fruit bombe. No harsh tannins, smooth all the way.
Andy Cronshaw, Manchester Evening News, December 2014
At the price this is indeed a wine of the Promised Land from the Taylor winemaking family's first estate vineyard. An excellent winter-warming Shiraz with vibrant cherry fruit. Well-balanced and easy drinking pair it with most meaty things or conversation

Wakefield Promised Land Shiraz 2013 is deep red with a strong blackcurrant and blackberry nose. Berries and spice with a hint of chocolate emerge on the palate amid smooth oaky tannins. This is an excellent buy at ú7.95 from The Wine Society
