Penfolds RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018 750ml

The initials RWT stand for ‘Red Winemaking Trial’, the name given to the project internally when developmental work began in 1995. Naturally, now no longer a ‘trial’, 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 plush texture.

The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa Shiraz at the highest quality level. RWT wines are built for the long haul, with the precision, concentration and balance to age for many years.

Deep mauve – impressive colour and brightness. Preserved satsuma and plum fruit with savoury smoked bacon notes. Solid and forceful with a balance of toasty oak and ripe black fruit. Fine, pronounced and persistent tannins court blue and black-berried fruits, sensitively encapsulating a sweet mid-palate. French oak of mixed forest origin and age works its magic – sensitive to this vintage flavours and structure, kindly endowed by Barossa vineyards and soils. A supple, woven/pleated fabric texture validates the inclusion of this blend's chosen vineyard components and its relatively brief sojourn in oak pre-bottling.

Alc: 13.5%
