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. Stylistically pleasing, with more pervasive French Oak and superior balance and texture, relative to earlier RWT releases.

Professional Reviews

94/100
Wine Spectator
Ripe and open-textured, rife with cherry, currant and blueberry jam flavors, subtlety shaded with spicy, slightly smoky overtones that linger along with the fruit on a very persistent finish. A hint of melted wax that is intriguing as well.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 30 2004



94/100
Wine Companion
Powerful blackberry fruit aromas; similarly powerful and concentrated dark fruit palate; oak and tannin extract in balance.
, James Halliday Issue: Jul 2004



87/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2001 Shiraz RWT reveals an attractive dense ruby/purple-tinged color as well as an earthy, plum, cherry, and peppery-scented bouquet, medium to full body, and slightly intrusive acidity. The fruit and weight are such that the acidity is only a minor annoyance as opposed to dominating the wine's character and compressing its texture. While acceptable, it could have been a lot better.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #155



14/20
Jancis Robinson
Deep blackish crimson. Hot, alcoholic nose. Very ripe fruit. Sweet and jammy. Medicinal, sweet, cough syrup. Not at all appetising. Is this a Penfolds wine? Tired fruit. Where's the freshness? Grip of (added?) tannin on the finish.
