Taylors Estate | Wakefield Shiraz 2016

Wakefield-Shiraz-wmAustralia’s Clare Valley is known for its rich, spicy shiraz, immediately drinkable and irresistable. The Clare based Taylor family knows how to capture that lush velvetiness, while keeping the peppery, berry cherry fruit fresh and vibrant. The fuller body is rich and jammed packed full of intense flavour that fills the mouth and lasts long into the next sip. It has the intensity to match a plate of flavourful venison sausages or it is a delicious wine to drink curled up on the couch after dinner is done.

Look for the Taylors’ label in Australia and for Wakefield in Europe and the Americas.  This is a wine where you might just find yourself reaching for another glass…
