Penfolds RWT Bin 798 2019 750ml

RWT Barossa Valley 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 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 lush texture. The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa shiraz at the highest quality level.

Sensory theatre – it’s all about the timing: Arising unabashed: A floral fragrance Ascending with a swirl: Saturated berried fruits à la glazed and atop Danish pastry avec custard. Revealed upon sitting: French oak proclaimed via citrus/brine, caper/cedar and sandalwood markers. Omnipresent: Cured meats embalmed in balsamic, anchovy paste and flowering thyme. The aromatic stage is set – a distinctive Barossa backdrop with respectful Penfolds lighting.


Dark fruits affording viscosity and concentration. Quince noted … and a little more (fig/cheese + balsamic?). Vietnamese mint and anise indulge an admirable palate “cooling effect”/lift. Dusty tannins fused with cocoa chocolate dust. Structurally confident - a defined backbone, Barossa weight and density.
