    Max Schubert AM, Penfolds Chief Winemaker from 1948 – 1975, is a key figure in Penfolds history: best known as the creator of Grange. The Penfolds The Max Schubert Cabernet Shiraz 2012 is testament to Penfolds winemaking philosophy and the art of multi-regional blending. Inspired by the legend, this wine commemorates Max Schubert’s contribution to Penfolds and personifies the style Max championed more than half a century ago.

    This wine has a deep red core, and crimson on rim. The nose is instantly, invoking an ostentatious entry – saturated red-curranted fruits, stewed mulberry. Next, a formic proclamation – soy/ Worcestershire sauce and freshly tanned leather. Then, closure – beneath a descending veiled waft of icing sugar, vanilla and fragmented brandy snap. The pallet in a word is complex. Unravels with air and time. Red fruits arise from a mix of dark chocolate/ mocha dust (cappuccino) and chocolate-coated liquorice. Succulent, savoury, chewy – propelled by formidable tannins and well-hidden new oak.
