The city of Lyon's Society of Mary sailed to New Zealand with little more than faith, fair winds and a few healthy vines.

He was originally focused on Cabernet as the varietal of choice during his trials with the nascent vintages of Grange. 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.
