Critic tasting note: "Starts off tight, showing refined cedar aromas, then explodes with a few minutes' air to yield lush blackberries and vanilla. The lush, rich mouthfeel carries the blackberry, vanilla and chocolate flavors effortlessly across the palate into a long, toasty finish. This thoroughly modern-style wine should drink well over the next 12 years or so." - 93/100, Wine Enthusiast

Producer Notes

Penfolds RWT Bin 798 Barossa Valley Shiraz, first made in 1997, was released after several years of red winemaking trials from which the wine takes its name. In the Penfolds tradition of trial and innovation our winemakers embarked on a project in 1995 titled 'RWT' - meaning 'Red Winemaking Trial' - to create a new Australian Shiraz integrating the rich, generous flavours of Barossa Valley Shiraz with the finesse of tightly-grained French oak. The result is a fine wine of great elegance and depth of flavour. RWT is second only to Grange in the Penfolds Shiraz hierarchy, although the two wines are stylistically different. RWT expresses Shiraz more openly than Grange. This is partly a function of the grapes themselves and partly a result of maturation in French oak, rather than stronger, sweeter-flavoured American oak. RWT is opulent and voluptuous, and fleshy where Grange is muscular.

Alcohol ABV: 13.5%

Vintage Notes
Uncharacteristic cool weather and spring rains retarded vine development throughout the valley. This was exacerbated by high temperatures in January followed by rains in February and early March. The season finished warm and dry however, enabling a trouble-free final ripening, with 1999 fruit characteristically lighter than 1996 or 1998, but also brighter and more varietally distinct.
Ageing
14 months in 75% new and 25% two-year-old French oak.
