  • Promised Land Chardonnay 2014

    Ciao Magazine, June 2015

    If you like your white wines to be clean, crisp and fresh without any oak influence then this bargain buy will almost certainly float your boat. From family-owned Wakefield, whose vineyards are in the Clare Valley but whose offices are in Petersham, this is a vibrant young wine bursting with bright varietal tropical fruit characters and fresh acidity. A wine for immediate enjoyment.

    Tropical fruit juice! Sweet, fruity scents. Tastes the same with sugary detail and a candied fruit expression. Finished short and tingly with lime acidity. Simple flavours, simple feel. Missing varietal character and feels very concocted and hard to (a) drink and( b) recognise as chardonnay.

    Promised Land Chardonnay 2014

    John Lewis, Newcastle Herald, July 2015

    The Wakefield Promised Land range is consistently great value and that is again so in the five 2014 releases, of which one is this unoaked chardonnay. It is pale straw in the glass and has tropical fruit salad aromas. The front of the palate brings forth white-peach flavour and the middle palate introduces elements of honeydew melon, lime zest and flint. Slatey acid displays at the finish. The Wakefield operation in Mintaro Road, Auburn, in South AustraliaÆs southern Clare Valley, was established in 1969 by Sydney hotelier Bill Taylor Senior and sons John and Bill. The venture was sparked by their great liking for Clare Valley wines and for 20 years they bought large quantities, largely from the long-gone Clarevale Co-operative, for their liquor outlets.

    Rich Cook, WineReviewOnline, January 2016

    I've taken some grief for scoring wines in this price range at this level, but when a wine of this quality pops itself up in a blind tasting and has agreement from a panel of judges, and it hits my markers, I'm happy to stand by it. This is a refreshing wine with a bright nose of flowers, lemon, apple and a little guava, followed by a palate that's silky on entry, delivers the aromas as flavors, and finishes long and zesty. More wines of this quality at this price would be welcome! A Platinum Award winner at the 2015 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition
