Penfolds Max's Shiraz Cabernet 2016
|Region||Australia, South Australia|
Colour: Crimson core with magenta brightness at the rim. Nose: A bluestone slatiness and waft of iron filings immediately captures attention, a Cabernet influence/lift perhaps? Almond cake sweetness and white chocolate create a web with boysenberry and blue fruit aromatics. Palate: Structural grip and defined tannins wraps around a palate full of blueberry and mulberry brightness. Black olive and brine-like Nori savouriness add an extra dimension so that fruit doesn't stand alone.
