Penfolds Rwt Shiraz 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Ein beeriges Bouquet mit einem Hauch von exotischen Gewürzen. Typisch Barossa Valley und unverkennbar Penfolds im Geschmack. Beerig und cremig am Gaumen, die Tannine führen mit einer ausgewogenen Säure zu einem anhaltenden Abgang.

  Tired of boring old wines from Australia? No? Then you can probably thank Penfolds Wines. Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole. The wine produced by Penfolds was originally prescribed as tonic wines for anaemic patients, with the wine made from Grenache. By 1870, with 60 acres under vine, they were producing many more wines. In the 1920s and 1930s, Penfolds was known for its fortified wine, like many other wineries in the area. 1943 marked the start of a massive expansion for Penfolds Winery, with first the acquisition of Auldana Vineyard and its winery, and then the purchase of Kalimna Vineyard in 1945. By the end of the decade, they owned vineyards in McLaren Vale, Griffith, the Hunter Valley, and Minchinbury. Around the same time, winemaker Max Schubert returned from oversees with a completely new vision for the future of the winery. In the 50s, he started experimenting with the red wine he called Grange, which is a mix of primarily Shiraz and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, and by the 1960s the wine had spread across the Australian wine industry. Not wanting to stop with merely one of the most successful wine projects in the history of Australia, Penfolds Wines started the “White Grange” project in the 1990s, leading to the immensely popular and publicized release of the Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay. Peter Gago became their Chief Winemaker in 2002, and he, along with three winemakers in charge of red wine and one in charge of white, continue the tradition of experimentation and evolution.

The 2006 RWT Shiraz was aged for 14 months in 70% new French oak hogsheads. The winery describes its style as opulent and fleshy compared to Grange's muscular and assertive personality. Opaque purple in color, it offers aromas of Asian spices, beef juice, toast, blueberry, and licorice. Rich, fleshy, and round, it has plenty of underlying tannin, impeccable balance, and a long, pure finish. It will deliver prime drinking from 2014 to 2030.

RWT Shiraz 2006 - Penfolds : RWT Shiraz 2006 - Rotwein von PenfoldsEin Barossa Valley Shiraz auf höchstem Niveau, ein "weiblicher" Grange.Im Glas präsentiert sich dieser Rotwein in einem dichten Purpurrot. Der Duft von getrockneten Früchten, besonders Pflaume und Lakritz kennzeichnet sein Bukett. Am Gaumen zeigt der Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2006 ein sagenhaftes Aromenspiel von dunklen Beeren und reifem Tannin, das ihm eine delikate und ausgezeichnete Länge gibt. Der noch jugendliche Geschmack mit reichlich integrierter Eiche, mehr als in der Nase lässt auf ein großes Reifepotential deuten. Ein idealer Begleiter zu Medaillons von Rehwild mit Äpfel und Pinienkernen gratiniert, zu anderem Wild und aromatischen Grillgerichten.Weingut: PenfoldsLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: ShirazInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,75 g/lRestsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 10 bis 15 JahreFassreife: 14 Monate in Barriques gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 18°CAuszeichnungen: * Decanter Silber* 93 points Wine Spectator Insider Rotwein > Australien > Barossa Valley
