SKU: PENRWTSHZMAG14
The Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2014 Magnum Back Vintage offers ascending florals, primarily violet (laced with pepper) harmoniously project alongside wafts of white chocolate and cocoa powder. Fruitfully aromatic – easily identifiable redcurrant and satsuma plum, with fleshy harderto-reveal cranberry, elderberry and mulberry. Scents of cedary French oak and pink peppercorn and spice artefact aligned with pan scrapings and balsamic – such a ‘glaze’ possibly derived from its Penfolds élevage. No overt barrel-ferment characters apparent. Perhaps swamped by depth of fruit (black cherry), mocha, chestnut and aniseed. A spoil of charcuterie delights, primarily cold meats, shadow the more reticent panforte and cola notes that ever so slowly appear with aeration. A textural leaning towards velour and satin – a veneered smoothness, rather than a plush or penetrating mouthfeel – allied by velvety, rather than grainy tannins.

”Bottle no. BX084. The quixotic RWT (Red Wine Trial) name used since '87 now has a bin number and a bottle number, the latter to thwart counterfeiting. It completed fermentation in French hogsheads, followed by 17 months maturation. The power and length of the wine is awesome, as is the price - but it's what the global market is prepared to pay.”
