Penfolds Rwt Shiraz 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Penfolds RWT Shiraz presents an admirable alternative to the multi-regional sourcing and American oak maturation that are hallmarks of Grange, expressing instead, single-region Barossa Valley Shiraz matured only in French oak. The initials RWT standfor 'Red Winemaking Trial', the name given to the project internally when developmental work began in 1995. Naturally, now no longer a 'Trial'! RWT Shiraz was launched in May 2000 with the 1997 vintage. 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 fine texture rather than sheer intensity or power of flavour. The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa Shiraz at the highest quality level. On the palate the wine is firm, lively & vibrant. Cola and a flavour sensation not dissimilar to a generous longitudinal slice of Blackforest cake, replete with fruits. Tight, finely-grained harmonious oak and lacy, mouth-coating tannins induce a multidimensional 3D palate, tempered by crisp acidity; awash with flavour, depth & extract. Drink with duck, red curry 'ice cream', split rice porridge, lychee, tamarind and pineapple.

  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.

RWT Shiraz 2007 - Penfolds : RWT Shiraz 2007 - Rotwein von PenfoldsEin Barossa Valley Shiraz auf höchstem Niveau, ein "weiblicher" Grange.Im Glas präsentiert sich dieser Rotwein in einem lebhaft funkelnden Purpurrot. Der Duft von Früchten, besonders Pflaume, Heidelbeere und braune Gewürze, wie Muskat und Zimt, kennzeichnen sein Bukett. Dazu gesellen sich Veilchen, etwas Bergamotte und Erdbeeren (mit Sahne!). Am Gaumen zeigt der Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2007 saftig, vollmundig und weich mit einem sagenhaften 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 Ãäpfel und Pinienkernen gratiniert, zu anderem Wild und aromatischen Grillgerichten.Er sollte mindestens zwei Stunden vor dem Genuss geöffnet werden.Weingut: PenfoldsLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: ShirazInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,75 g/lRestsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 25 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: 12-15 Monate in französischen Holzfässern (Hogsheads) gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 18°CAuszeichnungen für den Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2007:* Decanter Silber* 93 points Wine Spectator Insider Barossa Valley

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.
