Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2018 750ml
The initials RWT stand for ‘Red Winemaking Trial’, the name given to the project internally when developmental work began in 1995.
The alphanumeric Bin designation 798 was bestowed upon the wine from the 2016 vintage. Its style is opulent and fleshy, contrasting with Grange, which is more muscular and assertive.
RWT is made from fruit primarily selected for its aromatic qualities and plush texture. The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa shiraz at the highest quality level. RWT wines area built for the long haul, with the precision, concentration and balance to age for many years.
