Penfolds RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz

2013 is a blockbuster vintage for RWT, a dry, warm season of lower yields and heightened concentration of black fruits and liquorice, confidently met by the prominent dark chocolate and vanilla custard mood of French oak and a towering wall of firm, fine tannins. Fruit, oak and tannins ascend in unison, maintaining balance and form, even in the wake of such monumental proportions. A showstopper RWT that makes no apologies and is guaranteed to turn heads. Matured for 17 months in 57% new French oak hogsheads. 15 October 2015 release.
