The extensive expanse of Penfold vineyard resources have now been trained to yield parcels of the highest quality Cabernet Sauvignon, regardless of vintage conditions. Max is treated to a temperature controlled vinification on skins to develop the tannin profile, add structure and achieve balance while retaining fresh varietal characteristics. Upon completion of ferments, Max is filled to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for a year's maturation.
