Description

Majella Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Majella Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is dark red, almost black in colour, with a very complex nose with hints of blackberries and cassis.

Majella Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon complexity carries over to the palate, rich, juicy and ribena-like, with plums and fruitcake characters showing through.

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.

Majella Wines and Majella Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most awarded small Australian wines.

We are a family owned winery based in the famous Coonawarra wine region in South Australia, home to some of Australia’s greatest wines.

The Lynn family have been residents of the Penola – Coonawarra district for five generations, starting off as blacksmiths, wheelwrights, storekeepers and final graziers.

In 1968 Brian and Anthony Lynn started planting a vineyard on the Coonawarra property that their parents had purchased back in 1960.

At that stage the property was used for prime land production, but a decision was made to convert a lovely “terra rossa” bank on the front of the farm into vineyards.

Eventually the size of the vineyards grew to 60 hectares.

The remainder of the land is still used for sheep grazing, mostly for prime lamb production with the rest purely for wool. (https://www.majellawines.com.au/about-us/history)

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.

The property on which Majella now stands was originally owned by Frank Lynn, and bought by his nephew, George, in 1960.

George and Pat Lynn kept Merino’s for wool production on their farm about ten miles away, and had always wanted some good Coonawarra country for their up-and-coming prime lamb enterprise.

Viticulture, however, was not on their agenda until 1968.

George had always been great friends with Eric Brand. Eric has just started producing his wines under the “Laira” label and was selling some wine to the old Hardy Wine Company.

Brian was interested in planting a vineyard on the Majella property and in 1968 we went ahead and planted 6 acres of Shiraz.

Eric offered to buy the grapes to produce wine for Hardy’s and the future looked rosy.

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