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.

Sourced from the Ebenezer Kalmina and Moppa subregions in the northern Barossa Valley. Aged for 14 months in 83% new French hogsheads. Opaque in color with a magenta rim. This sample was particularly closed and backwards requiring quite a bit of air which led to a small core of black fruit and later hints of chocolate and freshly turned earth. Medium-full bodied the palate profile for this vintage is elegant and focused with a beautiful expression of fruit forming the foundation of a very long finish supported by fine tannins. There is potential for greater presence on the palate with some aging though this is approachable now. Chuck Hayward.

Full-bodied and richly textured with Penfolds hallmark weight and structure on full display the 2008 RWT shows a touch of the vintage s characteristic warmth but only a touch. The cassis and blackberry fruit is plush velvety and superripe ending with hints of tobacco mint and vanilla. It should drink well for at least a decade. --Joe Czerwinski Wine Enthusiast.

Penfolds RWT Shiraz presents an admirable alternative to the multiregional 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 stand for 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. "This release will complete the conversion of many Penfolds loyalists... their RWT is no longer on probation. Shiraz/Barossa/ French oak/Penfolds. Yes, it does work!" - P.Gago, April 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The development of Penfolds Red Winemaking Trial (RWT) reflects extraordinary progress in viticulture and winemaking. The two disciplines are increasingly intertwined, as growers and winemakers work together in search of optimum balance, ripeness and flavour.RWT draws fruit from 20 to 100 year-old vineyards arcing across the west and north-west of the Barossa Valley, mostly independently grown. The best vineyards produce fruit of voluptuous intensity, ripe tannins, and juicy flavours. The RWT Shiraz has a very seductive style with a plum/blueberry fruit profile and fine ripe tannins underpinned by savoury French oak.Since its first vintage in 1997, collectors have recognised the sheer class of RWT. Already the wine has a strong secondary market following, illustrating its collectability and cellaring potential." Penfolds.com
