Penfolds Max’s Shiraz is a tribute to former Chief Winemaker Max Schubert 1948-1975, a legend in Penfolds history. This inaugural release honours Max in the year he would have turned 100 years old (February 9, 2015) were he still with us today. 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.
|Aroma||At once, inimitably Adelaide Hills aromatics… White stone fruits, notably peach & nectarine. A suggestion of fig and spice – no doubt the clove aromatics arising from maturation in small French oak barriques. This oak mirrors sweet and cedary characters with nuances of almond.|
|Color||Very pale straw.|
|Palate||Stone fruits persist amid a pistachio nougat-like creaminess, more than likely derived from extended time on yeast lees. Up-front oak tannins and long, lingering acidity combine to create an enticing phenolic ‘grip’, enhancing the overall structure of the palate. Delightfully approachable.|
