Wakefield The Visionary Cabernet Sauvignon, alongside the Wakefield Pioneer Shiraz, forms the pair of wines that make up Wakefield’s flagship wines. It is a superb Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon named in honour of Bill Taylor Senior, Wakefield’s founder and visionary.

Wakefield Wines are located in the heart of the Clare Valley and was founded by wine merchant Bill Taylor Senior in 1969 with the purchase of 178 hectares of vineyards near the Wakefield River in Auburn. Wakefield Wines are still known under their original name of Taylor’s Wines in Australia. Bill Taylor carefully chose the site for its red brown loam over limestone soils ( this is known as “terra rossa”) and cool climate of the Clare valley. The same year, 1969, the first Cabernet Sauvignon vines were planted.

The grapes for Wakefield The Visionary Cabernet Sauvignon come from a series of exceptional vineyard blocks (A60, A10 and A70) which form part of their St Andrew’s vineyard and some old vine fruit from the Wakefield block on the Auburn estate. The grapes are destemmed and the parcels are vinified separately in potter fermenters. The parcels of wine are aged in a selection of new, second and third fill French oak barrels (40 % in new oak & the balance in 2-3 year old barrels, selected for cedar, tobacco & spice characters). After 12 months the wines are individually racked and returned to a selection a similar selection of barrels prior to blending and bottling.

Wakefield The Visionary Cabernet Sauvignon is only made in very small quantities in exceptional vintages and is labelled as an “exceptional parcel release”.
