Majella Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful, rich, concentrated, complex and – as is the wont of cabernet sauvignon – may bite you with tannins or some other painful lesson. Well, that doesn’t apply here, because the wine has too much in its favour as it rolls out endless velvety carpets for your teeth to rest on.

Majella Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Majella Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful, rich, concentrated, complex and – as is the wont of cabernet sauvignon – may bite you with tannins or some other painful lesson. Well, that doesn’t apply here, because the wine has too much in its favour as it rolls out endless velvety carpets for your teeth to rest on.

About Majella

 

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 finally, 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 lamb 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.

The first vintage was in 1972, and from then until 1991 the Lynn’s were purely grape growers, selling their production to larger wineries, predominately to Wynn’s Coonawarra Estate.

In 1991 a decision was made to make 10 tonne of Shiraz into wine. This was done at the Brand Family’s “Laira” winery by Bruce Gregory, who along with the late Jim Brand was winemaker there. Gradually more and more grapes were converted into wine until we decided to build a winery here on the Majella property.

That winery was completed in late 1998, and at the start of 1999 Bruce joined the Majella Team and production commenced at the new Majella Winery. From 2002 onwards all the grapes grown on the Majella vineyards have been processed on-site and packaged under the Majella label.

At present we produce in excess of 25,000 dozen of Majella wines per year, and still grow over 2000 prime lambs for national and international consumption.

Over the past few years four of the next generation have joined the company in various different management roles – Peter (Marketing), Nerys (Administration), Steven (Vineyards) and Gerard (Farm).

The future is assured!
