Product description
Penfolds RWT Shiraz presents an admirable alternative to the multi-regional sourcing and American oak maturation that are hallmarks of Grange, expressing instead, single-region Barossa Valley Shiraz matured only in French oak. Naturally, now no longer a ‘Trial’ RWT Shiraz was launched in May 2000 with the 1997 vintage. Its style is opulent and fleshy, contrasting with Grange, which is more muscular and assertive. RWT is made from fruit primarily selected for its aromatic qualities and fine texture. The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa Shiraz at the highest quality level.   100% Shiraz 
VINEYARD REGION Barossa Valley 
MATURATION 17 months in French oak hogsheads (57% new and 43% 1-y.o.)   
COLOUR Bright deep red 
NOSE More than just its fruity initial aromatic demeanour of boysenberry and mulberry……arising peat and Middle Eastern (Moroccan) spices laced with malt, mustard seed. Nutty, cedary oak coalesces with a splash of freshly glazed fig and just-baked brandy snap. 
PALATE  Cranberry, blueberry (Danish muffin) fruits overlay a stylish, integrated (rose-wood) French oak framework. Pronounced tannins caught up in a magma flow of Barossa fruits and unctuous extract – more of a mouth-coating eruption/propulsion! Balanced. Persistent. Complete.
