Vintage conditions

2017 Vintage

The vines in South Australia had plenty of rain over winter and spring, providing ideal conditions for the growing season. Cool conditions slowed growth in early spring with temperatures warming up in October. The cooler and wetter than average conditions negated the need for irrigation until deep into summer. Growers needed to carefully manage their vine canopies and crop size to guarantee quality. Weather conditions during ripening were generally dry, favouring fully ripened grapes with good colours and flavours.

Penfolds Max's

Our Max’s tier was introduced in 2016 and pays tribute to our first Chief Winemaker Max Schubert, who dared to revolutionise Australian winemaking. Each wine is polished and charming in character, expressing varietal cues, alluring fruit and structure. They are contemporary and vibrant upon release. They are immediately accessible but not without the assurance of more to come.
