- A dense and spicy style of Shiraz with jammy black fruit, anise and toasty notes on the finish. A text book South Australian Shiraz.
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.
A contemporary offering of South Australian Shiraz, this release provides a fruit-driven wine which is generous in flavour and persistent across the palate.
Maturation:12 months in seasoned American oak.
Cellaring Potential:5 years
