In time for Chinese New Year, Penfolds has launched the 2015 vintage of its Max tribute collection in honour of former chief winemaker, Max Schubert – and its available now at The Loop Duty Free, Auckland airport.
As recently previewed on Duty Free Hunter (see story) this new Penfolds range has been created to drink now. The range includes Max’s ‘The Promise’ Shiraz, Max’s Shiraz Cabernet blend, Max’s Shiraz and Max’s Cabernet Sauvignon all from the 2015 vintage.
Created in tribute to Max Schubert, former chief winemaker of Penfolds who joined the estate in 1931 and is best known for creating Penfolds’ iconic Grange Hermitage.
‘The Promise’, a limited edition Shiraz, has been launched in particular for the upcoming Chinese New Year in ‘auspicious’ red and gold packaging and commemorating the Year of the Fire Rooster which will start on Saturday, 28 January.
