Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Pale lemon color with aromas of tropical and stone fruit with citrus notes. On the palate flavors of peaches and apple with melon and lemon citrus, lively acidity with notes of vanilla. Medium finish ending with citrus fruit and oaky mineral character. Nice, tasting well now.

"a medium-bodied Shiraz, displaying generosity of fruit, a rich balanced flavors with a lingering finish". Loved drinking this beautiful, full of bold Tate Penfold's Shiraz.

At home trying all the different MAX’S. The blend is our favorite. $15 from the Napa Treasury store.

Выпито в Ланголо 30.10.20 из нового подарочного антикварного декантера. Неплохой Шираз 2017 года от Penfolds. Но особого впечатления не произвёл.

🙈 tasting 7th and last wine
at wset level 2 course (4th meeting)

2nd of a syrah couple.
new world and old world were the expected contenders.

this was the fruity one so my guess was Ozzie shiraz.

herbs, spice, blackberry and plum, vanilla and added smoke 👃

felt almost off dry but not...

medium acidity.
low tannins.

intense 👄 of mostly black fruits with hints of spice & herbs. even less oak.

medium finish.

i tasted a few other mid level penfolds not long ago, and like this one, no big impression was made.
