Penfolds is undoubtedly one of the top wine companies in the world in terms of quality, product range and consistency. Peter Gago has now taken over winemaking responsibilities and a string of good vintages over the past five years has helped Penfolds stay at the top of the Australian wine boom.
What The Critics Say
95/100 James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, James Halliday
"A delicious display of pear, apple, grapefruit and white peach flavour, both its sense of generosity and sizzling length in the higher echelons. Steel and spice notes add both interest and race to the wine's overall character. It's an excellent addition to the stable." Drink by 2022
93/100 The Wine Front, Campbell Mattinson
"It’s named, it pretty much goes without saying, after Max Schubert, who was Chief Winemaker at Penfolds between 1948-1975. This Adelaide Hills chardonnay won’t be released until July. This is intense with grapefruit, apple and white peach flavour; it has a creamy softness (a good thing in itself) but concentration and length are its main assets. Indeed it’s hard to describe this as anything other than a stylish, quality release."
92/100 Huon Hooke
"Light to medium, bright yellow colour, with a complex bouquet of nutty and nougat-like chardonnay aromas, complex and classical. Very appealing. The wine is multi-layered but subtle. Good intensity and drive, and a clean dry finish. There are some mineral notes as well as traces of grapefruit on palate. Long, long carry, taut and incisive. A very grown-up chardonnay for the price." Drink 2016 - 2025
