Penfolds Rwt Sirraz Barossa Valley Australia 2008
The fermentation was done in the traditional Portuguese method of treading the grapes on foot in mills to ensure good colour extraction and soft tannins. The wine aged in new French oak barrels for 15 months.
Black coloured wine. On the nose it symbolizes a lively aromatic conversation with the darkest elements of the Barossa Shiraz valley. A coal-like escuriDão, full of peat. It is a concentrated wine. Fortunately, redeeming and perfumed seducer, the high notes ascend - blueberry and dark plum, toast from a ristretto coffee. Dense and intense - with vibration, greasiness providing all the caches now expected. An avalanche of ripe and pronounced fruits
silky tannins complete the offer.
