Nice flavor, spicy finish. Great cheap Shiraz!
Eh it was ok. Spicy and no fruit which I suppose would be ok, and I wasn't in the mood for it. It tastes like spicey alcoholic water. update: gave me horrible hangovers - avoid if you can.
We were pleasantly surprised by this excellent example of an Australian shiraz. We read about it in a local grocery store's magazine and decided to try it. It has a smooth richness and gentle tannins with plenty of fruit upfront and a long pleasant finish.
Nice spicy flavor, great nose of spice, berry and earth, and a very nice QPR.
External Reviews for The Wishing Tree Shiraz
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.
Red fruit characters along with spice and pepper notes jump out of the bottle as you open it. No mistaking this for anything other that a great Shiraz. Tasting (or drinking) reveals wonderful vibrant red and black fruit characters, with secondary spice and pepper notes, very much a trademark of Western Australian Shiraz. Great intensity of flavor, yet elegant all the way to the finish. Enjoy with food and friends or sip under your favorite wishing tree.
Aromas of black plum and oak waft up from the glass and continue on the palate. The finish is rich with cassis and pepper.
