Superb Coonawarra Cabernet, displaying the hallmarks of the South Australian enclave - rich, fruit driven Cabernets with surprising complexity.
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. Bruce Gregory, who made the very first wine for Majella and has made every one ever since, is the inspiration behind one of Australia's finest wines, The Malleea. This flagship wine is a masterpiece which, along with the Majella Cabernet Sauvignon, has entered Langton's Classification of Australia's Best Wines.
Tasting Note: A dark aubergine purple colour with a ruby hue, blackcurrants and vanilla on the nose. The palate is complex, with rich plum fruit flavours.
