Wine Colour
At release, there is a bright, vibrant clarity to the wine. It has a very pale straw colour and subtle green highlights to the edges.

Wine Bouquet
The wine displays lifted fresh and vibrant aromas. Lemon and lime citrus characters abound, followed by layers of subtle blossom and enticing floral nuances.

Wine Palate
On the palate, the wine displays intense citrus fruit characters of fresh lemon and lime along with hints of orange blossom. An apex of tantalizing acid soars in the mid-palate, balanced by good fruit presence. The finish is crisp and resonates with citrus fruit - hallmarks of a great Clare Valley Riesling.

  • Wakefield Estate Riesling 201689/100

    Campbell Mattinson, WineFront, December 2016

    Riesling is often the best-value wine in the Taylors range. As it is in the range of many. This is good buying and drinking. It's pure, well-flavoured and satisfying. It tastes citrussy and just a little rose petal-like; it races through the mouth but puffs out its feathers just enough to catch your eye.

    Citrus and floral notes mingle effortlessly on a light and lithe body, with a crescendo of acidity on the finish. Details of white pepper and green apple peel add to the charm.
