Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Ultimate Wine Challenge 2011 Chairman's Trophy. The nose is expressive and complex, marrying scents of blackberry with licorice, rose petals, dark chocolate, oak, and vanilla with hints of tapenade and black tea. The flavors are in full agreement offering both ripe and dried berry with notes of cedar and vanilla. Ultra supple with great length and balance that should hold this wine in great form for many years. (May 2011)
St Andrews is the flagship range of ultra premium wines from Wakefield Wines. In 1995 the Taylor family purchased the historical St Andrews property next door to the Wakefield estate, and the first Wakefield St Andrews wines were released in 1999; a Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Riesling. The wines are hand crafted from individually selected parcels of fruit, grown on the family’s estate vineyards, and are a true labour of love. The wines have consistently accumulated an impressive number of awards and continue to attract national and international recognition for their outstanding quality.
