Wine Bouquet
The wine has complex and enticing bouquet of dark berry fruit along with juicy black plum, spice, cedar and hints of licorice, chocolate and roasted coffee.

Wine Palate
On the palate, the wine is rich and complex with layers of flavour. Dark berry fruits combine with lashings of coffee, chocolate and spice from high quality oak. The fruit and oak weight create a multidimensional palate which is defined with well-balanced, elegant tannins. This is a very generous wine with textural complexity and long, persistent flavours.

  • St. Andrews Shiraz 201495/100 Hedonistic

    Glen Frederiksen, WineLinesOnline, October 2016


    An opaque dark purple in the glass, lightening to a bright crimson at the rim. Scents of black pepper and eucalyptus lace fleshy mulberry, black plum, and blackberry fruit. Velvety on the palate, it fills the mouth with thick black berry fruits, licorice, and a note of mocha. The long after-flavor is fruit-driven, picking up a piquant blueberry syrup note that goes on and on. This is a delicious wine now, and should drink well for another 15 years or longer. Try with teriyaki glazed red meats off the grill.

    Rich Cook, WineReviewOnline, November 2016

    This Issue's Reviews
    One of Wakefield's more famous offerings scores again with this vintage, which shows restraint and elegance. A deep nose of black and blue berries with intriguing rather than in-your-face menthol, orange blossom and spice notes that translate nicely into palate flavors, riding a supple texture through a long and satisfying finish that brings a touch of sweet citrus forward.

  • Three Tips for Holiday Feasting
    St. Andrews Shiraz 201495/100

    Robert Whitley, WineReviewOnline, November 2016

    Three Tips for Holiday Feasting
    This hot-rod Shiraz from Wakefield is a showy wine that dazzles consistently from vintage to vintage. The 2014 is rich and layered, showing aromas of ripe blueberry, blackberry and mulberry, an overlay of eucalyptus and a hint of spice. The finish is seemingly endless, with exceptional persistence of flavor.

  • St. Andrews Shiraz 201491/100

    Isaac Baker, Terroirist, January 2017


    Deep purple color. Aromas of deep currants, blueberries, dark plums, along with black pepper, grilled steak, rich earth and eucalyptus. Full but smooth, plush but fresh, ripe fruit (blueberry and blackberry) combines with fleshy tannins and vibrant acidity, and the fruit maintains a fresh edge. Lots of earth, soy, pepper, tobacco, beef jerky. Instantly delicious but complex, with five to ten years of potential development from this wine. Aged 18 months in American oak.

  • A Wine with Distinction: 2014 Wakefield Shiraz St. Andrews
    St. Andrews Shiraz 201491/100

    Marc Hinton, Enobytes, February 2017

    A Wine with Distinction: 2014 Wakefield Shiraz St. Andrews
    Dark red fruit, fresh tobacco leaf, clove, spice and sandalwood dominate the bouquet. On the palate big flavors of cherry and licorice are on the forefront with a nuance of mint in the background. The finish is lengthy and lavish expressing luxurious layers of texture and tannin in harmony. Rack of lamb with a port reduction sauce served with leek, thyme, and potato gratin will integrate exquisitely with this wine.
