$156.00 per case (6) delivered - PENFOLDS MAX'S Shiraz 2018
$26.00 per bottle RRP $35.00
Penfolds Max’s Shiraz 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 contemporary offering of South Australian Shiraz, this release provides a fruit-driven wine which is generous in flavour and persistent across the palate.
Dark, black, inky fruits to the fore.
Oak evident, alongside chocolate, mocha and a splash of spice. Yet, more gamey notes stake an early claim – pan juices, corned beef, mushroom…and an evocative trodden forest-floor underlay.
Flavours and Palate
Rich, generous, expansive.
Fruit-sweet, with volume – satsuma, plum, conserve, white sultana cake, black olive, cola. A plush, velvety/suede texture…with respectful tannins and oak playing a supportive role. Persistent across palate, lingering thereafter.
