The Promised Land is the Taylor family’s $15 (and often under) range and for this price point this bunch is vibrant and fresh. And put simply…. good drinking, whether your favourite would be the velvety Cab Merlot or the zesty Riesling. There is also an unwooded Chardonnay for those who love the fruitier, less savoury expression of this variety.
The back label also features a groovy temperature indicator which does an adequate job of telling you when you wine is in ‘the zone’ to drink. It sure is a conversation starter!
Taylors Promised Land Cabernet Merlot 2015 – Blueberry, cassis, violets and nutmeg abound from this wine. Juicy fruit backed by some velvety tannins and good length. A fun wine.
Taylors Promised Land 2015 Shiraz – Lushly coloured with plums, liquorice and pepper. The mid weight palate ends on a peppery note with soft enough tannins that you can give this wine a good chill. Good stuff.
Taylors Promised Land 2015 Riesling – Lime zest and juice, floral and stonefruit. Medium bodied with soft acid balance and a long finish. Settle back and enjoy on a casual weekend.
Taylors Promised Land 2015 Unwooded Chardonnay– Banana and nectarine and some honey. Medium body with crunchy acid that finishes the wine on a crisp note. Drink this one with food – lunch with friends or your local BYO.
