Greath depth of crimson. Lustre, brilliance. Blueberry RWT markers thrust ahead of goji berry and loganberry fruits. An aromatic swirl of choc/hazelnut/liquorice propels all that is RWT syle and class. Thereone, lifted scents of just glazed creme brulee and wafts of icing sugar. Barrel-ferment and ferric overtones gently bring all back down to ground level - Barossa iron/earths no less. Viscous and lush. An iimmediate supple fleshiness, liveliness. At release, during this primary fruit stage - berried ice-cream and black foreast cake fruits unfold - redcurrant and blackberry. Powdery tannins - silky and glossy - after textbook velvet/cashmere texture. So smooth!

POINTS
Longtime readers will know of my personal fondness for this wine, going back nearly to its first vintage, the 1997. That said, the 2019 RWT Shiraz Bin 798 continues this wine's impressive run, artfully combining hedonistic waves of mixed fruit with the balancing and structural effects of 18 months in French oak hogsheads (57% new, with the balance second-fill). Dark chocolate and vanilla notes join blackberries and plums on the concentrated, full-bodied palate, picking up hints of coffee, black olives and licorice on the long, silky-textured finish. This should easily age up to two decades.
