Heiner Lobenberg über:
RWT Shiraz Barossa Valley 2018

97+
/100

Lobenberg: Die Nase dieses fast lilafarbenen, undurchsichtigen Stoffs ist deutlich exotischer als die des Qualität-Bruders 'Magil Estate“. Französische Eiche umspielt mit feiner Vanille und Zedernholzcharakter die deutlich von Orangenschalen geprägte Schwarzkirschen-Brombeere-Mischung. Dazu provencalische Kräuter. Im Hochrollen die bei allen großen Penfolds-Weinen obligatorische Blaubeere in feiner Schokolade. Frische Pflaume und schwarzer Pfeffer dazu. Alles in höchster Intensität aber mit fast wuchtiger Samt-Fülle. 97+/100

Parker über: RWT Shiraz Barossa Valley

-- Parker: Sourced only from the Barossa Valley, RWT is aged exclusively in French oak, giving it two major points of difference from the rest of the Penfolds range. Always a sexy, voluptuous wine (and admittedly a personal favorite), the 2018 RWT Shiraz ratchets that up to new heights in a great Barossa vintage, boasting layers of berry-like fruit, refined vanilla shadings and baking-spice notes, plus more exotic elements like star anise and cocoa powder. It's full-bodied and plush without being unstructured in any way, with a lingering, complex finish and the concentration to age two decades or more. 98/100

Suckling über: RWT Shiraz Barossa Valley

-- Suckling: This has a very attractively fresh, showy feel to the nose with aromas of ripe red cherries, blackberries, goji berries and redcurrants, as well as red plums and some wild-herb and licorice notes on offer, too. Very expressive and fragrant. The palate has a super intense and powerful delivery of ripe red-cherry and plum flavors and immaculately fresh French oak (64% new) that really clasps and holds the finish long. The tannins are so ripe and well positioned. Drink over two decades. 96/100

Decanter über: RWT Shiraz Barossa Valley

-- Decanter: Plush and opulent, this bombshell in a striking oak corset makes an exuberant entry, striding down the red carpet with its ample fruit talking in a bright, effusive voice. After that brassy entry it settles in the glass, its blackberry and brulée flavours singing softly atop a bed of powdery tannins, and the nutty, cedar tones framing a long finish. Having changed so much since its inaugural 1997 vintage, RWT ('Red Winemaking Trial') has never presented its fruit so voluptuously and immediately, with oak now part of the supporting cast rather than playing the star role. 96/100
