The Red Winemaking Trial, launched in May 2000 with the 1997 vintage, is, 20 years on, needless to say, no longer a 'trial'.

‘RWT’ focuses solely on shiraz fruit of Barossa provenance, a contentious cousin compared to Grange’s blended fruit and American oak structure. Now a Penfolds classic in its own right, it showcases an opulent, fragrant fleshy style, with 15 months in French oak hogsheads barrels.


Reminiscent of Northern Rhône expressions, this has serious wine pedigree, with its nose of vibrant dark cherry and black fruit. Accents of sweet oak spice, cassis and plum with touches of fine boned, chocolatey tannins.


Decant and drink slowly alongside braised beef cheeks with creamed swede.
