91 Points Robert Parker
Medium to deep garnet-brick in color, the 2007 RWT Shiraz has aromas of dried berries and leather, cassis, earth and meat with hints of eucalyptus and dried herbs. A little hard on the tannins, it is savory in the mouth and is drinking now.

95 Points James Halliday
Excellent crimson-purple; an unapologetic full-bodied shiraz, with waves of blackberry, plum and licorice; tannins and oak, too, are in abundance. Extremely rigourous selection has paid big dividends. Drink to 2027.

The 2007 RWT Shiraz is 100% Barossa Valley Shiraz matured 13 months in French hogsheads, 71% new. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it presents youthfully mute aromas of warm blackberries, stewed plums, kirsch, cedar and cloves with an array of Indian spices opening out with air. In the full-bodied mouth it gives very firm, coarsely grained tannins, very crisp acid and good concentration, finishing long and chewy. It should be more open and approachable after a year or two in bottle, drinking to 2022+. Source: Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) December, 2010 by Lisa Perrotti-Brown
