    This collection of Penfolds RWT delivers two outstanding vintages of a richly flavoured, dark-fruited Shiraz with beautiful integration of oak. A superb gift for decades to come.

  • Tasting notes

    A classic Barossa Shiraz with 15-20 months maturation in French (50-70% new) oak hogsheads, Penfold 'RWT' Shiraz 2016 has lovely intense blackberry, dark cherry and liquorice aromas with vanilla cola notes. Dense blackberry, dark cherry, mocha and chinotto flavours fill the palate along with plentiful fine, chalky, firm, dry almost al-dente tannins and a roasted chestnut roasted almond vanilla oak complexity. Enjoyable to drink now but best to wait a while between 2028-2050.

    Penfold 'RWT' Shiraz 2017 is a sturdy but ageworthy Barossa vintage with 15-20 months maturation in French (50-70% new) oak hogsheads. Elemental elderberry, mulberry, star anise aromas with toasty vanilla notes. Concentrated elderberry blackberry fruits, chocolaty dry firm tannins and roasted chestnut vanilla ginger oak complexity. Wait a few years of for it to develop. Drink around 2028-2050.
