Penfolds Max


Grange South Australia Shiraz 1999

Topping the night off with the pinnacle. A Grange from 1999, made during an era that it was still produced in a regular bottle and a reasonable price. It was a mature version of the Saint Henry we had earlier that evening. Extreme dense in flavor, powerful and strong oak vanilla notes. Dark fruit soaked in cigar box and oh so smooth. 21 years old. Don’t take too much time drinking it and don’t decant it. It peaks in about 30-60 minutes. — 18 days ago

Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 2017

Sumptuous! Sourced from different vineyards and aged just right in American oak, this polished gem is all Cab on the nose. The Shiraz comes out midway through: dark fruit and Earl Grey tea. A vanilla-chocolate swirl envelopes the finish. A smooth criminal, this one... — 15 days ago

Super fresh. Super zippy. Crowd pleaser. Just enough bubbles to dance on the tongue. Date night is a success. — 2 days ago

Wein Pinot Noir 2015

Needs an hour decant. Good not great before that.

Nose : cranberry. Cranberry flower. Good density. As this opens some earth. Almost savory. Very expansive. Penetrating perfume.

Palate: cranberries very elegant. Great texture. As it opens more savory. Long. Great.

This is a hard wine to define. Very distinctive. But very good.

Koonunga Hill Shiraz 2017

77% Shiraz, 23% cab. Very nice blend. Staying at Solaz and dining at Al Pairo. Bought this wine at a new market in the corridor for less than $20. The wine worked with all of our dishes. Will probably go back to get some more of this as we still have 19 nights to go. — 14 days ago


St. Henri Shiraz 2015

Second wine for the night was this Shiraz from Penfolds that was so dense, so rich and edgy. A perfect progression from the over achieving Pinot from Sicilia. It had multiple layers of intense dark fruits, leather and hints of pipe tobacco. Subtle soft tannins that lingered on the finish for minutes. — 18 days ago

Grange Bin 95 Shiraz 2004

Grange. That is all. Well, ok - so complex and spicy on the nose, needs a lot of air. Grange is such one of the greats, always a privilege. — 18 days ago

RWT Bit 798 Barossa Valley Shiraz 1997

Couldn’t keep up my note taking with the multiple bottles of excellent wine being presented. I didn’t realise that RWT went back as far as 1997. Very much a Barossa Valley red from Penfolds. Top Quality ripe fruit and Oak - in this case French oak. Good but not great. I have had better examples of RWT. — a month ago

@Bob McDonald We have a small vertical of RWT '97-'05, but I do think there are vintages prior. Glad to know this isn't dead yet.
