Penfolds Rwt Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016 x6
SOUTH AUSTRALIA-BAROSSA VALLEY
2020 - 2040
12 months in French oak hogsheads (72% new)
Dark red with a purple core.
Alluring, invoking. Sweet, aromatic, spicy (cardamom, cinnamon, lavender) can aromas of butter chicken be mentioned in this context, in a tasting note?! Ascent of tangeloblood orange spikes - propelling a chinottocitrus lift. Dusty white chocolate, cocoa butter, and Italian temptations - panna cotta, zabaglione and what can only be an illusion of tiramisu! Oak - bound to be lurking there somewhere! Camouflaged? Decant more aggressively to reveal?
Conceded. It is: glossy, flamboyant, ostentatious. Is not: over-ripe, alcoholic, extracted. Thereby hits the stylistic Barossashiraz bulls-eye with a little help from fastidiously selected French oak. This oak tightensfocusesencapsulates. Simultaneously structurally tackled by embracing, ripe tannins. This fruit is then surely shrouded, submissive? Never. Archetypal blueberry bavarois and blackberry fruits brazenly strut across the palate. Dense, bountiful, and was there mention of lengthhhhhhhh ?!
