2009 Wine - Red Penfolds

2009 Penfolds RWT Shiraz (Barossa Valley, Australia)
Wine - Red $159.99 (750mL)

This is the baby Grange, at less than half the price and made for earlier consumption. RWT stands for Red Wine Trial, which is a bizarre name but somewhat indicative of its sumptuous, full-bodied, fruit-forward style.

Sourced from Barossa Valley fruit and matured in French oak barriques, this is only the ninth vintage release and it may be one of the best ever and extremely well done given the less than stellar 2007 vintage.

Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator

Rating: 92

Dense, fleshy and generous with its cherry and red berry flavors, which are wrapped in notes of pepper and licorice and persist impressively on the broad finish. Best from 2012 through 2017. 215 cases imported.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

Rating: 93

The 2007 RWT Shiraz is 100% Barossa Valley Shiraz matured 13 months in French hogsheads, 71% new. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it presents youthfully mute aromas of warm blackberries, stewed plums, kirsch, cedar and cloves with an array of Indian spices opening out with air. In the full-bodied mouth it gives very firm, coarsely grained tannins, very crisp acid and good concentration, finishing long and chewy. It should be more open and approachable after a year or two in bottle, drinking to 2022+.
