Nose

Vibrant. Red earth 'Barossa dirt' regional cues not hindered by a 15-month sojourn in French oak. Initially, a lift of trademark tarbitumen and subtle V.A. ... above scents of assorted carpaccio meats, steak tartare, green olive, capers, rosemary. Upon sittingswirling, patisserie scents of almond croissant, cinnamon bun ... and perhaps crème brúlée glaze (oak-derived?). To repeat, very Barossa!

Palate

A firm and binding structure, medium-bodied. Focusseddefined, yet still generous. Mouth-watering acidity clutching opulent fruits renders an impressive pathway cleaved across frontmiddleback palate ... a pathway all ably assisted by chalky tannins and absorbed integrated oak. Currently youthful and energetic, yet this vintage already impatiently awaits its secondary and tertiary maturation phases. Tension. In the interim, partake.

Background

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.
