Shiraz South Australia
Penfold's inviolably high standards of quality have achieved international acclaim for a distinguished lineage of famous winemakers and memorable vintages. Drawing fruit from the finest vineyards, Penfolds fashion a deeply flavoursome yet forward drinking Shiraz that's in fine form. Max Schubert’s constant pursuit of excellence paved the way for all the eminent Penfold winemakers who followed in his footsteps. A contemporary rendering of the timeless Penfold style, Max is a fruit driven wine, delicately framed by background oak, generous in flavour and refined.

One of the top winemaking estates in the world in terms of quality, brand awareness and product range, the consistency in the quality of Penfolds is recognised worldwide. Penfold are predominantly a South Australian winemaker, sourcing Shiraz from their own prestigious vineyards and the pick of independent growers, many of whose families have supplied grapes to the Penfold company for generations, including distinguished member families of the elite Penfolds Grange Growers Club. Designed as an early drinking Shiraz, the ferments are filled to a selection of seasoned American oak barrels for a year's maturation.
