Estate Notes

Penfolds RWT Shiraz 1997 is an effortlessly beautiful Penfolds Shiraz with superb integration; a classic Australian wine style. It is in excellent condition.

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.

“Bright, spicy and vibrant, jazzy with blackberry, cherry and spice flavors, with hints of coffee and anise lingering on the extended finish. The rich flavors are balanced with snappy acidity. Has the intensity to age.” Wine Spectator

“ Medium-deep garnet-brick in color the 1997 RWT Shiraz has an expressive meaty and gamey nose with smoked bacon, yeast extract and hints of dried mulberries and figs. Medium-bodied, it is fresh, has soft and powdery tannins and finishes long.”
