Taylors / Wakefield Promised Land Chardonnay

Taylors promised land

Who makes it?

Taylors Promised Land is a very savvy wine range made by the Taylor family. The family is one of Australia’s first families of wine and well known for quality wines at very good value prices. This Chardonnay is just one of the Promised Land range that includes a Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. 

The Jaraman range is also particularly good, as is the entire Taylor family’s Riesling offering.

Winelovers will know the brand as Taylors in Australia. However these wines sell under the name Wakefield internationally.

How do they make it?

This is an unwooded Chardonnay, made in stainless steel tank to retain the fruit focus. So it is unsurprising that is immediately ready to drink- chilled, fresh and young.

What does it taste like?

A Chardonnay made to be fresh and crisp and therefore, it has a white peach, elderflower line with a slight vegetal twist. It is a dry, unwooded white that is impeccably made. Furthermore, there is a savoury edge to this wine and it has some fleshy intensity to fill the mouth. 

What to drink it with?

A wine like this should be enjoyed with fish and chips, or a goats cheese salad or goats cheese quiche.
