PENFOLDS Max's Shiraz Cabernet 2019
90 points “A very purely-fruited rich and ripe nose gushing with luscious blackberries and cassis with a smoky bacon undertone. Rich in the mouth with an even more intense blackcurrant and sweet mocha profile a hint of graphite edging its way in. With a full body moderate levels of acidity and a medium length the light dusting of tannin helps to retain some freshness. But it is undeniably plush and voluptuous.” – Decanter
Max Schubert the very first Chief Winemaker at Penfolds revolutionised Australian winemaking. His achievements and his passion are celebrated in Max’s Shiraz Cabernet.
The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were picked from the finest regions across South Australia and the wine was matured in oak for around 12 months creating a great value introduction to the Penfolds portfolio. Plums blueberries cherries raspberries mint tea graphite black olive tapenade chocolate creamy cannoli peppery juniper cola spices charcuterie and vanilla all come together in a wine that offers a quality to price ratio that’s hard to beat.
