RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz presents an admirable alternative to the multi-regional sourcing and American oak maturation that are hallmarks of Grange, expressing instead, single-region Barossa Valley Shiraz matured only in French oak. 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. 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 lush texture. The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa Shiraz at the highest quality level.

Dark red with a purple core.


Alluring, invoking. Sweet, aromatic, spicy (cardamom, cinnamon, lavender) can aromas of butter chicken be mentioned in this context, in a tasting note?! Ascent of tangeloblood orange spikes - propelling a chinottocitrus lift. Dusty white chocolate, cocoa butter, and Italian temptations - panna cotta, zabaglione and what can only be an illusion of tiramisu! Oak - bound to be lurking there somewhere! Camouflaged? Decant more aggressively to reveal?


Conceded. It is: glossy, flamboyant, ostentatious. Is not: over-ripe, alcoholic, extracted. Thereby hits the stylistic Barossashiraz bulls-eye with a little help from fastidiously selected French oak. This oak tightensfocusesencapsulates. Simultaneously structurally tackled by embracing, ripe tannins. This fruit is then surely shrouded, submissive? Never. Archetypal blueberry bavarois and blackberry fruits brazenly strut across the palate. Dense, bountiful, and was there mention of lengthhhhhhhh ?!
