Wine Summary Image

Provenance: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Bottle No. CE839

First vintaged in 1997 after several years of ‘Red Winemaking Trials', RWT is somewhat of a new-comer, however this impressive Shiraz is now a fully fledged member of the Luxury release each year for Penfolds. RWT is opulent and fleshy, a pointer to the single origin of this trademark wine, the Barossa Valley. The fruit for RWT is selected for its aromatic qualities and fine texture; characters which are on show in the 2011 vintage. Fragrant flavours of blackberries and ripe cherry combine with dark chocolate and vanilla to provide another exceptional RWT.

Expert Reviews

94 points, Andrew Caillard MW

A wine that truly transcends the reputation of the vintage. Typically it is deep in colour with fragrant blackberry, chinotto, mocha aromas with meaty roasted chestnut notes. The palate is well-concentrated and balanced with blackberry, cola, sweet fruit flavours, lovely vanilla roasted chestnut nuances and classical fine-grained structure. It finishes muscular firm and long. A very stylish claret style!

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour:

Deep mauve – impressive colour and brightness.

Aroma:

Barossa fruits ascend – preserved satsuma plum, rhubarb, cranberry. Confusingly, yet intriguingly, a waft of tar-sulphide masks country of origin…Spain, France?

Assorted ‘exotics’ remind of entry into a continental gourmet deli – cheese/mettwurst competing with blueberry yoghurt waffle-cone for attention? Another pertinent aromatic – cedar and restrained French oak.

Palate:

Solid, forceful. Full-bodied – belying vintage. Fine, pronounced and persistent tannins court blue and black-berried fruits, sensitively encapsulating a sweet mid-palate. French oak of mixed forest origin and age works its magic – sensitive to this vintage’s flavours and structure, kindly endowed by Barossa vineyards and soils.

A supple, woven/pleated fabric texture validates the inclusion of this blend’s chosen vineyard components, and its relatively brief sojourn in oak pre-bottling.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.

Very deep, dark, dense red colour with purple and black tinges. Smoky, earthy and sooty aromas, savoury and most certainly not fruity. The tannins dominate the palate, which is very dry, grippy and savoury, demanding time and patience. Does it have the requisite fruit? A good wine, but rather tannic. Merely a good RWT, but well below the level of the 2010.
