Named in honour of the company's founder, Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold, Rawson's Retreat is easy drinking and full-flavoured, with drink-now appeal. True to Penfolds' multi-region, multi-vineyard blending policy, Rawson's Retreat is made with premium fruit sourced from a range of South Australian districts. This policy reduces the impact of vintage variation, helping winemakers produce consistent wines year after year.
Colour: Bright purple-red.
Nose: Spicy and savoury aromas give way to reveal dark berry, 'summer pudding' fruits. Notes of stewed beetroot and liquorice, with a whiff of oak.
Palate: Fruit driven yet well structured, with approachable tannins and subtle oak underlay. Hallmark mid-palate richness and a lovely mouthfeel. Satsuma plum flavours laced with four-spice and black pepper.
Ideally suited to Pasta, Pizza, Lamb.
