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 (150 acres now under vine), with Cabernet the flagship varietal. First produced in 1994, Majella Cabernet Sauvignon has quickly established a reputation as one of Coonawarra’s finest.
A wonderfully rich and balanced Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon that’s all class.
Aged for 18 months in a combination of new and second use French oak hogsheads. Totally opaque black dark red colour with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Intense aromatics of blackcurrant, ripe mulberry and a hint of liquorice overlaid with bay leaf flow out of the glass underscored by hints of black olive, cedary tobacco characters and spice. The power of the nose is reflected on the palate with rich yet seemingly elegant flavours of ripe blackcurrant, subtle liquorice and infusions of bay leaf filling the mouth over a backdrop of cedary tobacco characters and spice. Slightly dryish with a sturdy tannin structure taking on a velvety like appearance beneath the waves of fruit. Very long conclusion of ripe blackcurrant, touches of liquorice, bay leaf, cedary tobacco characters and spice.
Cellar 6-8 years.
