Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a deep red with a vibrant purple hue.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has an aroma of rich blackcurrant, subtle spice, tomato leaf and a touch of eucalypt. French oak maturation is also evident with subtle aromas of cedar and dark chocolate.

Wine Palate
This is a wine of great intensity. It has distinctive blackcurrant and cassis fruit flavours. Subtle oak characters of cedar cigar box and spice are also evident. The tannins are fine and elegant – a hallmark of the varietal. The palate is well balanced, complex and fulfilling and lingers on the finish.

Cellaring Notes
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2021.

    Wakefield Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Angela Mount, The Bath Chronicle, November 2014

    The Wine Guide
    This is what good, young New World Cabernet Sauvignon should really taste like! ItÆs from an area called Clare Valley where the weather is cooler and the wines are fresher. This smells and tastes like pure blackcurrant juice with a dash of mint. ItÆs gloriously ripe, and tastes like nectar. Bursting with the intense flavours of freshly crushed blackcurrants, itÆs absolute joy!. Fresh, young, not oaky û just exuberant, vibrant, juicy and mouthwateringly good. Try it with roast beef or roast lamb this weekend.

    Moderate black cherry and black currant fruit, and a touch of eucalyptus provide the initial aromatic impression, with a varietal green, herbal edge. The wine finishes smooth, with moderate fine-grained tannins in the back. A good choice with a grilled burger smothered in caramelized onions.

    Robert Whitley, Wine Review Online, January 2015


    Wakefield Estate's Cabernet will be a revelation for some. For one thing, it's a blockbuster red wine from Australia's Clare Valley but it's not a Shiraz. For another, it exhibits the strong scent of eucalyptus on the nose, which is a telltale sign of many Australian reds. This vintage is dense and layered, with gorgeous black-fruited aromas, silky tannins and a dazzling finish. And it's a big bang for the buck
