Penfolds Max's Shiraz Cabernet 2015
Penfolds Max's Shiraz Cabernet is a tribute to former Chief Winemaker Max Schubert 1948-1975, a legend in Penfolds history. Max's constant pursuit of excellence paved the way for those who followed in his footsteps and also allowed the status and heritage of Penfolds Winery to grow. A more approachable Penfolds style at release - ideally shelf to glass; save the cellar.
Bodegas Muga Rioja Rosado 2016A very light, bright colour, mainly pale orange-tinged salmon pink. In this harvest we see a return to very fresh, acidic fruit which dominates the whole sensory profile of the wine. On the nose a complex aroma of white-fleshed fruit with stones. In the aftertaste the olfactory notes are transformed into something finer and more complex in which, as well as the previously mentioned aromas, we can detect lychees, apricot and faint reminders of the bakery shop. In the mouth it proves deeply attractive since, although the tart fruit is still to the fore, the overall taste is softened by the fine, elegant, well-integrated lees. It is a wine with a long finish which combines sweetness, freshness and acidity.
