RWT wines express single-region Barossa Valley Shiraz in Australia. Initially developed as a project in 1995, the name stands for "Red Wine Trial." Today, RWT is arguably one of Penfolds trademark wines. RWT 2012 reveals a magenta-tinted shiny black color. The sophisticated and savory nose is marked by Morello cherry and dark chocolate aromas, along with pistachio, licorice, and soy sauce. The palate is rich and generous, the texture velvety and juicy... Showing great complexity, the wine will continue to open up over 20 years in the cellar.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium-deep garnet purple in color, the 2012 RWT Shiraz is going through a closed stage. The nose reveals youthful blackberries and wood aromas with some baking spices and Provence herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant, quite pretty and fine, then finishes clean.
