Review: Wishbone Barossa Wines – Red and White

August 9, 2012 Leave a comment

Available as a set from Leicestershire-based fine wine merchants, Philip Pruden Wines, these two wines are a great combination for late summer drinking and enjoying.

Red, New World, Wishbone Shiraz.Grenache, Barossa 2009

 

Delightfully well rounded”

If ever a wine cried out to be described as delightfully well rounded, it would have to be this one, available at Leicestershire fine wine merchants, Philip Pruden Wines. Why? Because it hits your taste buds with a robustly fruity mouthful right from the first sip. All that fruit-laden flavour is perfectly matched with spices and beautifully balanced with good acidity. We’re also talking well rounded because the Wishbone Shiraz.Grenache accomplishes something very special. Not only does it bring together juicy plum and raspberry on the palate, but it also draws in black cherry and a subtle, but clearly defined note of creamy oak. But don’t mistake well rounded for overwhelming. We also think it’s well rounded because, being medium to full bodied, it is the perfect companion for the fun of a late summer barbecue or the delights of a special get together á deux. Even better, it’s available with local delivery for Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.

This wine’s undeniably mouthwatering presence comes courtesy of a highly successful combination of Grenache(Garnacha) and Syrah(Shiraz). You could describe this marriage of grapes as the perfect match, making it the definition of well rounded! It’s a wine which has rightfully won a name for itself. Fruity, well rounded, delicious – call it what you like. But you won’t want to buy it just the once.

Wishbone Shiraz.Grenache, Barossa 2009 is available in 12 bottle cases from fine wine merchants, Philip Pruden Wines, with local delivery for Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.

White, Wishbone, Sem/Sauv, The Magpie Estate, Barossa 2010

 

A distinctive presence”

We couldn’t let our magpie eye overlook this wine, available from Leicestershire-based fine wine merchants, Philip Pruden Wines. It certainly stands up to scrutiny, thanks to a distinctive presence which brings dry, crisp and tangy together in a compelling mix. But there’s even more to this wine than meets our demanding eye. Enjoy the fruits of the labours of its Australian creators who have brilliantly brought together the subtle smokey Semillon with the fulsomely tangy and citrus-laden Sauvignon.

This clever combination is the perfect marriage of flavour and nose, creating a wine which is both delightfully well balanced and interesting to drink. The expressions of the Barossa really do shine in this wonderful wine. It somehow manages to be both modest and impressive at the same time, something you can’t fail to notice whether you’re enjoying a glass at home or sharing a bottle with friends. There are plenty of white wines out there, but very few which so lastingly win over the palate. This is a great choice for anyone with an eye for a great (and great value) wine.
