The Penfolds Max’s Cabernet Sauvignon is a tribute to former Chief Winemaker Max Schubert (1948-1975), a legend in Australian Winemaking History for his inventiveness passion and risk. Max’s constant pursuit of excellence paved the way for those who followed in his footsteps and also allowed the status and heritage of Penfolds to grow. Inspired by his visit to Bordeaux, and impressed with the French cellared style wines, Schubert dreamed of making something different and lasting of his own. From this passion for innovation came his famous Grange wines. An experiment Schubert was forced to conduct in secret and hide the wines deep in the Penfolds cellar, Grange’s reputation as one of the world’s most celebrated wines continues to grow today. On its 50th birthday in 2001, Grange was listed as a South Australian heritage icon, while the 2008 Grange vintage achieved a perfect score of 100 points by two of the world’s most influential wine magazines.

The 2015 Penfolds Max Cabernet is a Multi-Regional Blend made in the same style and with the same passion as Max Schubert’s Grange wines and displays the Penfolds “stamp” inspired by Schubert himself. Cabernet Sauvignon holds a long heritage in Australia, in fact Penfolds own Block 42 in the Barossa Valley is thought to be the oldest continuously producing Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the world. The Penfolds Max is a beautiful example of the Penfolds Cabernet Heritage. Polished and alluring in character, it is a flavor intense, rich and opulent wine that also displays exceptional balance. A blend of fruit from top Vineyards in Wrattonbully, Padthaway, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale and Port Lincoln, the wine boasts a deep red magenta color, with rich, red currants cranberry and dried herbs on the nose, followed by delicious red, blue and black fruits melded with sweet spiced cinnamon. Fine silky tannins add savory balance and length to the palate. Drink now to 2024.

A superb bouquet of red currants, cranberry and dried Italian herbs. Full bodied and rich on the palate showing excellent Cabernet line and length. Red, blue and black fruits melded with sweet spiced cinnamon.
Vanilla Chai and cedar oak. Fine silky tannins add savory balance and length to the palate. Max would be proud.
