    Winemaker's Notes:

    Penfolds RWT Shiraz has been widely haild as an impressive extension of the Penfolds "House Style" - a wine with an indelible Penfolds stamp, offering a contemporary expression of the finest elements of Barossa Valley Shiraz. For optimum enjoyment, this wine should be carefully decanted prior to being served.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This shows the strength of the 2010 vintage in the Barossa Valley, marrying incredibly ripe fruit with seamless structure. Cinnamon and vanilla notes from the French oak blend easily into blueberry fruit, all grounded by hints of dark chocolate and umami. It’s full bodied, lushly textured almost to the point of creaminess and long—ridiculously long—on the finish. Drink 2018–2030 and possibly beyond.

    Year in and year out there is an understated quietness to this wine that speaks volumes about the style, as everything is working together as one; the fruit, the oak, the tannins and the inherent complexity of some seriously old vine Barossa material shines through; freshness, vitality, harmony and ageworthy are just a few descriptors that do this excellent rendition of RWT justice.

    Firm tannins surround a generous core of black cherry, red plum, tobacco and crème brûlée flavors that come together smoothly and expressively. Lifts its intensity a bit on the finish to let the flavors shine.

    Wine Spectator

    Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 RWT Shiraz is a little closed showing intense and youthful primary aromas of cassis, kirsch, cedar, prunes and a touch of mulberries. Rich, muscular, packed with flavor, it is full-bodied, concentrated and finishes long with oak still poking out. Very youthful still, it will drink from 2014 to 2026+.

    Grange-level Barossa shiraz enriched by aging in new French oak. The style brings chocolate-smooth tannins to bear on tight, tense and floral fruit, polishing away any and all rusticity. The only edge is a touch of volatility, reading as flamed orange zest. This will need years in the cellar to show off the quality and character of this fruit.
