The modern style of Australian Chardonnay, drawing on Penfolds extensive vineyard resources, Max's guarantees the drinker a thoroughly enjoyable taste of Adelaide Hills Chardonnay at its very finest. Exacting standards of viticultural management throughout the growing season ensures the winemaking team receive a quality of fruit that's worthy of the Penfold label. Careful vinification techniques are employed to ensure the wine retains all the virtue of the vineyard, while adding a measure of complexity through a regimen of lees stirring and a term of maturation in a high proportion of new French oak barriques.
Pale straw hues. Inimitably Adelaide Hills, white stone fruits, nectarine and peach, figs and lithe spice, the clove aromatics of French oak barrique. Stone fruits persist on the palate, pistachio nougat creaminess, from extended time on yeast lees, cedaryness and almond oak tannins, long, lingering acidity, an enticing phenolic grip in support of the overall structure of palate.
