MAJELLA ESTATE COONAWARRA THE MUSICIAN CABERNET SHIRAZ
Brian ‘Prof’ Lynn, the effusive, yet self-deprecating voice of Majella Estate, would never brag about his accolades but it’s clear he has a lot to be proud of. With some fantastic grapes, one of Australia’s best winemakers and a state of the art winery, Majella craft some of the finest wines in the country on one of the most revered strips of dirt in the wine world. Winemaker, Bruce Gregory, who made the very first wine for Majella and has made each one ever since.
This flagship wine is a masterpiece which, along with the Majella Cabernet Sauvignon, has entered Langton’s Classification of Australia’s Best Wines. They also make an excellent breakfast wine; The Majella Sparkling Shiraz.
Coonawarra lies only 60 miles inland, exposed to a maritime climate, with dry and moderately cool summers. Persistent cloud cover generally moderates the ripening period temperatures. The 'Terra Rossa' of Coonawarra is Australia's most famous soil, renowned for its affinity with Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
Primary fermentation was in 10 tonne stainless steel static fermenter's pumped over twice daily and 20 tonne rotory fermenter's, with some parcels finished in new and second use French oak hogsheads.Vibrant, unmistakably Coonawarra to smell and taste although it is a light style of red showing fresh berry and spice with a soft finish. Great with BBQ's, pizza and red meat.

"High pitched red and black currant aromas are varnished with hints of liquorice and Australian scrub, as blue gum menthol notes streak across the grainy, mid-weighted palate. Vibrant, with real flow from beginning to graceful end, this elegant wine is ready to drink now."
