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 collection for Penfolds. RWT is produced using single-region, Barossa Valley fruit and matured only in French oak. 2012 is one of the more formidable RWT's - reminiscent of the original release. The wine is sleek, muscular and rich, showing all the hallmarks of a truly exceptional RWT, however it will need cellaring to really showcase its true beauty. Scoring an exceptional 99 points by Andrew Caillard, MW, it goes without saying that this 2012 RWT will sell out quickly.
