Penfolds Max's Shiraz 2018
An excellent introduction to the Penfolds Shiraz style, this is rich and chocolaty with oodles of plum, blackberry, warm pavement, green peppercorn and bay leaf. It's opulent but well-structured. There's a little alcohol warmth, but it gets wrapped in satiny fruit and spicy tannins. It's muscular but harmonious and capable of aging until around 2029.
Delivers raspberry, cherry and currant flavors that are bright and juicy at the core, with details of mocha, spice and toast on a plush, velvety frame. Drink now. 960 cases imported.
