Penfolds Rwt Shiraz South Australia 2004
External Reviews for Penfolds Rwt Shiraz South Australia
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 flavors. The RWT Shiraz has a very seductive style with a plum/blueberry fruit profile and fine ripe tannins underpinned by savory French oak. Since its first vintage in 1997, collectors have recognised the sheer class of RWT. Already it has a strong secondary market following, illustrating its collectability and cellaring potential. The 2004 was rated 95 pts. by Robert Parker. It was aged for 14 months in new (69%) and one year old (31%) French oak barrels. The palate is opulent, juicy and mouthwatering - a compote of assorted berries plums and cherries. Dark pepper spices adorn the back palate, and the supple tannins are engulfed by the fruit.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewPractically roars from the glass with vanilla and spice, yet despite aging in mainly new French oak, the fruit flows forth in waves, adding cherries and blackberries to the mix. Creamy, lush and mouthfilling, this is a top-notch effort that may be drunk now and over the next 15 or more years.Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 91Dense and reduced at first, with a blackberry and balsamic edges, this takes form with air. Tart cherry and black pepper spice emerge as the tannins give it definition with their earthy, mineral character. If you choose not to age it, serve it with roast duck.
