Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit for this wonderfully aromatic unoaked chardonnay was sourced from growers vineyards located to the north and south of the town of Margaret River. Hints of peach, stone fruit, pear and melon waft from the glass. What it promises on the nose is delivered on the palate. Fresh, vibrant and lush fruit characters make this crisp chardonnay a delight to drink. The finish is long and lively. Enjoy as an aperitif or match up with fresh salads and seafood.
My Notes:

About Wishing Tree:

"The name comes from my childhood days. I, along with my two sisters and older brother, would run around our local park, under the watchful eyes of our mother and father. When we had suitably exhausted ourselves, we would gather under a beautiful old oak tree, with wide trunk and massive almost exaggerated canopy. To gain a few minutes peace, our parents told us if we made a wish under this tree, it would come true. The tree became The Wishing Tree."
- John Larchet, Proprietor

All of the fruit for The Wishing Tree is sourced from in and around the Margaret River region. These wines showcase the best of the riper characteristics of the fruit picked in the warmer northern parts of the region and the more subtle, delicate nuances of the fruit from the cooler conditions in the south.
