External Reviews for Penfolds Rwt Barossa Valley South Australia
Rich in character and aristocratic in structure, a noble red that wears its subtle cherry, blackberry, chocolate, pepper and sweet spice flavors on a polished frame like a bespoke suit, letting them all play out elegantly on the well-buffed finish. Drink now through 2015.
Bright, spicy and vibrant, jazzy with blackberry, cherry and spice flavors, with hints of coffee and anise lingering on the extended finish. The rich flavors are balanced with snappy acidity. Has the intensity to age. Best from 2002 through 2010.
Ripe and open-textured, rife with cherry, currant and blueberry jam flavors, subtly shaded with spicy, slightly smoky overtones that linger along with the fruit on a very persistent finish. A hint of melted wax is intriguing as well. Best from 2005 through 2015.

Penfolds' Red Wine Trail takes Grange-level shiraz (50 percent from Kalimna) and ages it in French rather than American oak. Its flavors carry a Barossa signature without going too ripe. In fact, this 2001 tastes like black currants and fresh cherries preserved at the exact moment of peak ripeness. The other way it's marked as a Barossa shiraz is the floral character, here equally fresh, cool as dew on violets. The French oak may have helped lock in the vibrant magenta color, and it may emphasize the supple richness fo texture. But the main play is in the fruit, hight-toned, sunny, beautifully grown.

Former winemaker John Duval began developing the RWT ("Red Winemaking Trial") in 1995, producing the first vintage in 1997, by taking 100 percent Barossa Valley Shiraz and aging it in French oak, in contrast to Penfolds' legendary Grange, a blend of grapes from multiple regions, aged in American oak. The result has become a new classic that can sometimes outshine its older brother.
