Red Wine Penfolds 2020 Max'sRegular price $25.99
Colour : Crimson core with magenta brightness at the rim.
Nose : A bluestone slatiness and waft of iron filings immediately captures attention, a Cabernet influence/lift perhaps. Almond cake sweetness and white chocolate create a web with boysenberry and blue fruit aromatics.
Palate : Structural grip and defined tannins wraps around a palate full of blueberry and mulberry brightness.
Our Max’s tier was introduced in 2016 and pays tribute to our first Chief Winemaker Max Schubert, who dared to revolutionise Australian winemaking. Each wine is polished and charming in character, expressing varietal cues, alluring fruit and structure. They are contemporary and vibrant upon release. They are immediately accessible but not without the assurance of more to come.
Penfolds Max’s Shiraz Cabernet is a tribute to former Chief Winemaker Max Schubert 1948-1975, a legend in Penfolds history. Max’s constant pursuit of excellence paved the way for those who followed in his footsteps and also allowed the status and heritage of Penfolds to grow. A more approachable Penfolds style at release – ideally shelf to glass, save the cellar.
