Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2014

From the Producer

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 stand for ?Red Winemaking Trial?, the name given to the project internally when developmental work began in 1995.?RWT is made from fruit primarily selected for its aromatic qualities and fine texture rather than sheer intensity or power of flavour.

Acclaim

It has you cruising for a bruising and then it just brushes past you with the lightest of touches. This is Barossa Shiraz in its black tie best. It?s rich, it?s black, it?s carved with tannin and yet it?s soft and svelte. You?ve signed on the dotted line before you?ve thought through the repayments. The release notes mention chestnuts. It?s not a bad call: there are nutty notes here but they?re sweet and smoky. There?s a whiff of coffee. A sizeable surge of classic blackberry and plum, pegged to soy and earth. Undeniable shiraz. 95 Points, Wine Front
