Tasting Notes :
Penfolds Max’s Chardonnay is a tribute to former Chief Winemaker Max Schubert 1948-1975, a legend in Penfolds history. 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.
Stone fruits persist amid a pistachio nougat-like creaminess, more than likely derived from extended time on yeast lees.
Up-front oak tannins and long, lingering acidity combine to create an enticing phenolic ‘grip’, enhancing the overall structure of the palate.
