Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia
One of the world's most recognized marques, Penfolds define the classic Aussie accord of Cabernet and Shiraz, a genre unto itself, into an approachable, freshly flavoured, early drinking style. Dr Penfold held a firm belief in the medicinal value of wine and obtained cuttings from the south of France, replanting them around his homestead in Adelaide Hills. Max Schubert called on the fruit of these ancient cuttings in the 1940s as he began his trials in formulating the mighty Grange. He now lends his name to a splendid construct of sound structure and succulence of fruit.
