A few weeks back we featured the Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz as our weekend wine special and introduced you to one of Australia’s oldest winemakers. They’ve been producing wine for almost two hundred years and their experience shows through their quality and consistency. Today, we’re featuring another great selection from their portfolio, the Rawson’s Retreat Shiraz Cabernet 2017.
Penfolds Rawson’s Retreat range was launched in 1995 as the brand’s ‘entry level’ selection, to offer consumers Penfolds quality at affordable prices. Named in honor of the company’s founder, Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold, Rawson’s Retreat is easy drinking and full-flavored while also being kind on your wallet!
The wine opens with floral aromas, notes of blackberry, dark cherry and freshly cut plums. It’s ripe and full-bodied with soft tannins, finishing with a light spice. Incredibly drinkable, it is the perfect pick for parties!
