Penfolds Rawson's Retreat Merlot 2002
The name Rawson's Retreat is an informal reference to the stone cottage built in 1845 by Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold at the famous Magill vineyard in Adelaide, where he, with wife Mary and daughter Georgina, had settled the year before and were to establish the Penfolds winery which still operates today.
Colour: Deep and bright youthful crimson with a purple edge.
Nose: Fresh and vibrant varietal merlot with heady aromas of summer pudding and berry coulis, diced with mint and blueberry.
Palate: A juicy, youthful and lively palate. Soft, ripe tannins court appealing varietal flavours of dark plums, raspberry and rhubarb. The wine has a medium to full body with a fleeting suggestion of savoury meats arousing further interest towards the finish.
Ideally suited to Lamb, Pasta
Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon.
