Expert Reviews

TYSON STELZER 95 POINTS!

"What more can we say about the Majella Cabernet? Universally regarded as one of Coonawarra's greatest wines it continues to win trophies and medals throughout Australia and the world. The wine has a wonderful deep magenta colour with a rich nose, redolent of ripe plums, black berry and hints of dusty oak. The palate is true Coonawarra cabernet - very structured, with layers of black fruits. Very rich with fruitcake complexity. The lingering finish is very dry and overlaid with "fine grain" tannins. The wine was "barrel fermented" and then aged for about 22 months in French oak hogshead (300 litre barrels). It's a real winner!! For a decade, Majella has remained my benchmark for $30 Australian cabernet and countless wines have missed the cut in the presence of this comparison. 2009 is a textbook, definitive Coonawarra cabernet of concentration, structural poise and fine-tuned definition."

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Majella is famous for the production of high class Cabernet Sauvignon and this wine is no exception!

Colour

It’s deep, magenta in colour with a very vibrant freshness.

Aroma

Cherries, choc mint and blackberries show up on the nose with hints of eucalyptus and “vanillin” oak.

Palate

The palate is rich with ripe dark-fruits and well weighted, grainy tannins. As ever the finish is long and lingering, and it is certainly a wine that will stand the test of time.

Winery Profile

The Lynn family have been residents of the Penola – Coonawarra district for over four generations, starting out as store keepers and then graduating into grazing.

Viticulture started in 1968, when 6 acres of Shiraz was planted. There wasn’t a lot of money in it, but it complimented the sheep enterprise, so eventually some 70 acres were planted – about 60% Shiraz and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.

In 1980 Majella sold their first grapes to Wynn’s Coonawarra Estate. This was the start of a long relationship that continued for over 20 years. Since 1989 they have continued planting new vineyars and at present they have about 150 acres under vine. Most of the new plantings have been Cabernet Sauvignon, but there are some small areas of Merlot and Riesling planted as well.

In 1991, the first 600 cases of Shiraz were made up and in 1994 the famous Majella Sparkling Shiraz was born. In 1998 the Malleea Cabernet Shiraz was born and this has been acclaimed as one of Australia’s great red wines.
