'RWT is a sort of alter ego to Penfolds famous Grange. There's a family resemblance but it differs in important ways. RWT is a single-region wine, Grange a multiregional blend; RWT is French oak-matured, Grange uses American oak. In style, RWT is less macho, more elegant but still ripe and profound. The '09 offers a deliciously pure expression of Barossa shiraz reminiscent of raspberries, blueberries, milk chocolate and florals. A whiff of lead-pencil aroma from the oak is blended seamlessly. In the mouth it's lush, poised and complete, with seductive, lingering flavours supported by very fine, ripe tannins.'
- Age, 15/05/12, Epicure, Page 19 by: Ralph Kyte-Powell.

'In a year like 2009, many commentators may consider this progency of the Barossa to be more European in style. Perhaps, perhaps not. RWT continues to offer an alternative single-region Penfolds Shiraz Experience' – Peter Gago, Chief Winemaker
