The Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2020 Magnum is regionally distinct with an aromatic profile that can only signify the Barossa Valley. A compelling synthesis of dark forest berries, bramble, satsuma plum conserve and dark cherry. The primary fruit characteristics are unpinned by generous warm spice, fresh tobacco leaf and a suggestion of chinotto/sarsaparilla. Violets add a hallmark floral stamp. Intriguing nuances of fresh vanilla pod and dark-roast arabica ristretto round out an enticing nose. French oak notes are present yet remain restrained and nuanced. The palate is generous, with voluminous and enveloping tannins, so silken they betray their density and persistence. This sturdy foundation provides a perfect canvas upon which to display the spoils of the harvest, layers of flavours roll over the palate in waves. Varietally correct and true to origin. Blue fruits, boysenberry, plum and mulberry are front and centre, a signature of RWT. A suggestion of crème brûlée and panforte provide a sweet counterpoint to complex notes of exotic spice and cedary oak. Naturally, now no longer a ‘trial’, RWT Shiraz was launched in May 2000 with the 1997 vintage. The alphanumeric Bin

”Matured for 16 months in an even split of new and 1yo French hogsheads. When you see a wine with this depth of colour, grading to a brilliant crimson rim, you know all is well. The deliberate use of French oak (to the exclusion of all others) was a decision made when planning the birth of RWT with its inaugural 1997 vintage, and in tasting through Penfolds' array of red wines, it stands out. It's a brilliant trifecta of intense fruit, balanced tannins, and that classy oak.”
