Why We're Buying
Penfolds RWT Bin 798 Shiraz is a powerful, rich, and intense wine that takes after Penfolds Grange. It elaborates on the hallmark characteristics, carving its own muscular and assertive image in the process. In 2018, Dan Murphy's Wine Panel wrote, "Our wine panel, in unison, exclaimed, "Wow!" on nosing this wine. We were instantly captivated by its brooding darkness...Silky smooth and without a hair out of place, this is the premier wine of the 2020 Penfolds release."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium-deep garnet purple in color, the 2012 RWT Shiraz is going through a closed stage. The nose reveals youthful blackberries and wood aromas with some baking spices and Provence herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant, quite pretty and fine, then finishes clean.
