Red Wine Trial is no longer on probation and will complete the conversion of many. A resplendent accord of pure Barossa Shiraz, French oak and the eminent Penfold style. Parcels of fruit, sourced from mature, twenty to hundred year old vineyards in the northern precincts of Barossa Valley, where the higher clay contents retain moisture and slowly release it to the vines, achieve a remarkable quality of Shiraz with darker, richer fruit profile. Grapes are small, thick skinned and intense, with balanced acidity and even tannin ripeness. An elegant, physiologically ripe Barossa Shiraz of outstanding quality and depth, matured sixteen months in an extremely high proportion of new French oak hogsheads.
Black core, magenta rim. Broods upon opening, yet soon to reveal a living aromaticness, sweet, saturated festive pudding, quince paste with glacéed cherries, dark cocoa and Arabica bean, jammon and ground pistachio nut and licorice root, bruléed creaminess of oak. The rich, dark tannins of northern Barossa, impressions of dark roasted meats, oxtail, slow-cooked beef cheek and marrow, texture and viscosity. Dark chocolate nougat and nuts, soy and charcoal fill the gaps.
