Penfolds RWT Bin 798 2019 Lunar New Year is a limited edition release adorned with a special Lunar New Year design. 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. The alphanumeric Bin designation 798 was bestowed upon the wine from the 2016 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 plush texture. The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa shiraz at the highest quality level. RWT wines are built for the long haul, with the precision, concentration and balance to age for many years.

Wine Style

Red - big, bold, full-bodied

Palate

Dark cherry and blackcurrant/pastille 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 an impression of cocoa chocolate dust ... couverture chocolate at that! Structurally confident - a defined backbone, Barossa weight and density; supportive if not reticent oak.
