Winery Tasting Notes
Dark cherry red with a solid core.
Plum and spice mingle with dark cherry. Fresh, vibrant and inviting.
A medium bodied style with attractive mid-palate weight. Juicy plum fruit and ripe dark cherry notes are given subtle notes of savoury French oak. Tannins are gentle and round, providing texture and length on the palate.
Ideal with beef, lamb and pork dishes.
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.
