Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

94 Points. Campbell Mattinson - Wine Front. 1 December 2008

1996 was an excellent Coonawarra vintage, though in general it produced more elegant styles. It’s fading now, but the 1996 Majella was outstanding in its day.

When I tasted this in 2006 it had really hit its straps. It was long and fine and lingering, the development at perfect pitch. Tobacco, leather, blackcurrant and briar. Elegant and yet well powered. Complex. A great advertisement for Coonawarra cabernet. A single bottle consumed over dinner in 2008 though was far less impressive – it was either unrepresentative, or its best days are on the wane. If I taste another bottle I’ll report in.

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.
