A success story of long term agricultural diversification, the Majella property was originally owned by Frank Lynn, and bought in 1960 by his nephew, George, for a prime lamb enterprise. Viticulture was not on the agenda until 1968, when George, encouraged by his friend, Eric Brand (of Brand's Laira fame) decided it would complement the sheep. Eric purchased the fruit for Hardy's, but the deal later fell through and for a couple of vintages tonnes of premium grapes were left to rot. The risk ultimately paid off. Majella have since had a long contract supplying Wynns and today, plantings have continued to expand, with Cabernet the flagship varietal. This wine was produced from mature vines planted between 1968-1974 and maturation took place in French oak, of which 50% was new, for a period of approximately 24 months.
Outstanding saturated inky black purple colour with very deep black dark purple hue. Perfumed, perfectly ripened blackcurrant top notes are intermixed with some spearmint and violet scents followed by a touch of dark mulberry and spicy cedar. Medium to full bodied the palate possesses ripe blackcurrant and dark chocolate flavours with some underlying spearmint, cedar and spice. Very fine grained beautifully integrated tannins. Excellent depth with long blackcurrant, dark chocolate, cedar and spice aftertaste.
