Estate Notes

Penfolds RWT Shiraz 1999 is an effortlessly beautiful Penfolds Shiraz with superb integration; a classic Australian wine style.

Penfolds RWT Shiraz presents an admirable alternative to the multi-regional sourcing and American oak maturation that are hallmarks of Grange, expressing instead, single region Barossa Valley Shiraz matured only in French oak. 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 fine texture. The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa Shiraz at the highest quality level.

Reviews

“Lithe and appealing for its range of flavors, this fascinating wine has dark plum and berry at the core and mint, leather, peach-fuzz and exotic spice notes sneaking in around the edges. Texture is firm but not overly so. It all adds up to an aristocratic red, as the flavors sail on and on.” Wine Spectator

“Medium to full red-purple; abundant ripe, sweet, dark berry fruit is married with French oak on the bouquet; the palate has excellent mouthfeel and structure with fine-grained but persistent tannins adding to the length of the wine. A particularly good outcome for the vintage.” James Halliday
