Regular price £864.00

The RWT is a much more recent invention, and is made from Barossa fruit from contracted growers, aged in 100% new French oak (Penfolds have seven full-time coopers who maintain and repair barrels, and sometimes manufacture them from imported, seasoned oak). This has a wonderfully deep, vibrant deep crimson colour. It is rich and warm with a spice-infused nose of clove and mint with dark berry fruit. Voluptuous on the palate, with thick, velvety berry and raspberry fruit and dense texture, the low-acid finish is long and rounded. Perhaps slightly less structured, but delicious and still well-balanced for cellaring.
