PENFOLDS RWT SHIRAZ 2001
Magenta with a deep purple core.
An archetypal refined Barossa Shiraz nose with liquorice, blackberry and plum aromas over a tar underlay. With closer inspection, higher floral notes arise meshed with lemony, scented oak.
Perfectly balanced with dark berry fruits framed by spicy French Oak. Impressive layers of flavour make up the generous mid palate. Texturally enticing, with beguiling, silky fine-grained tannins that appear talc-like, and powdery, even alongside St Henri.
