Penfolds RWT Shiraz was released after several years of red wine making trials (thus the name RWT – Red Wine-making Trials) this was a result of demand for 100 per cent Barossa Shiraz back in the 90’s.

Launched in May 2000 with the 1997 vintage, it’s obviously no longer a trial! Penfolds wines are built for longevity and this wine is no exception, you will be rewarded with patience. As you’d expect it’s received some mighty scores from the cream of the crop of Aussie critics…

97/100 & Top Rank (Huon Hooke, The Real Review)
“Very deep, saturated purple-red colour; brown/woody spices and earthy/stony aromas layered with black fruits and tar. Smoky oak very present but balanced. Very firm and full-bdied, a powerhouse of a wine, the tannins coating gthe mouth. A big, bold, brawny wine in typical style, with mouth-gripping tannins and formidable length. Cellaring recommended!”

96/100 (James Halliday, James Halliday’s Wine Companion)
“An excellent RWT release from Barossa Valley shiraz matured in French oak hogsheads (80/20% new/one-year-old) for 14 months. Purple splashed crimson in the glass, it smells Barossa through and through with super-ripe dark plum, mulberry and blue fruits cut through with hints of baking spices, berry cream, licorice, panforte, dark chocolate, cedar and struck flint. Concentrated and opulent with densely packed fine tannins, deep, resonant Barossa fruit and a powerful yet elegant, distinctly regional profile. Another for the cellar.”

This is a great alternative (price wise) to Penfolds Grange. The grapes for RWT are sourced entirely from the Barossa Valley while Grange is a multi-regional blend. Highly collectable with serious cellaring potential – up to 2043!
