Penfolds Shiraz RWT 1999
The initials RWT stand for 'Red Winemaking Trial', the name given to the project internally when developmental work began in 1995. Naturally, now no longer a 'Trial', RWT Shiraz was launched in May 2000 with the 1997 vintage. A modern Penfolds classic that is a dense crimson red in the glass. It is on the nose, rich, saturated, Christmas pudding-like fruit and stylish French oak. Followed by more subtle aromas of dried glace fruits and underlying dark licorice and prune. This bottle # 34465 has a perfect fill and a very sound cork.
