Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2011
Wine SpectatorRipe and supple, with a sense of transparency to raspberry, red plum, clove and espresso flavors, lingering on the expressive finish. Rich in flavor without being weighty. Best from 2016 through 2022. 564 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateGiven this rainy vintage, the medium-deep garnet colored 2011 RWT Shiraz is a lighter, more elegant style of RWT, which sadly didn't quite have the stuffing to age as I had hoped. Smudged on the nose with fading notes of earth, white pepper, blackberries and pencil lead plus a touch of cedar, it is a little lean and flat in the mouth plus clipped and chewy on the finish.
