The Wishing Tree Shiraz 2011 / 750 ml.

Item#: 74239

RP8686 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 27th Feb 2013
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2011 The Wishing Tree Shiraz is another blend of Langhorne Creek, Currency Creek and McLaren Vale Shiraz grapes with a few other varieties blended in minor proportion for depth. It shows warm blackberry and wild blueberry aromas over suggestions of tree bark, cloves and spice box. On the palate it is medium-bodied with a good amount of pure berry flavors laced with pepper, balanced acid, a low to medium level of soft tannins and a medium to long finish. Drink it now to 2015.

Kevin McPartland - Premier Wine & Spirits June 18, 2013

"Aromas of black plum and oak waft up from the glass and continue on the palate. The finish is rich with cassis and pepper."

Where It's From

Country / Australia

View more wines from Australia

When casual wine drinkers think of Australian wine, they probably think of the critter-laden labels of Yellow Tail and The Little Penguin, among others. And while large wine companies dominate the Australian list, there are also a great number of smaller producers creating highly-rated, award-winning wines.

The majority of Australian wine is produced in South Australia, with most of that (those “critter wines”) carrying a South Eastern Australia appellation. Subregions such as Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale are home to smaller producers and higher quality wines. Victoria and New South Wales are also significant regions, and wines from Western Australia are reaching America in increasing numbers.

Though Shiraz is the grape most associated with Australia, they’ve also had great success with Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and Grenache.
