A soft and fleshy shiraz boasting a lively palate of juicy red berry fruits, plum and spice, along with subtle chocolate and savoury characters from the oak maturation.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release the wine is a dark red colour with ruby red hues.
The wine has a seductive, lifted aroma characterised by plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry fruits along with subtle chocolate and a touch of oak derived spice.
The palate is rich, luscious and round with intense, perfectly ripened fruit characters. Mocha coffee and subtle spice characters complement generous fruit flavours of plum and blackberry. The wine is medium to full-bodied with a soft mid-palate and supple tannins. It has a well balanced structure with great texture, good length and lashings of fruit on the finish.
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2020.

The Wine Front, April 2014
It has sweet blackberried syrupness with highlights of mint and coffee. That coffeed note singly sweetly through the finish. It all feels a bit manufactured but the density of fruit is not to be scoffed at; there's more fruit weight here than most of the reds it'll be competing against at its (discounted) rate.

2013 Wakefield Estate wines provide a quality match for food pairing. The Shiraz is a well balanced wine that is rich and delivers ripened fruit characteristics with aromas of plum black current, dark cherry and oak derived spice. Matc h with antipasto and pastas.
