Majella Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia
Excellent Langtons Classification. One of the Coonawarra's most feted marques in Cabernet Sauvignon. The Majella property was originally acquired for the purpose of grazing lamb. Eric Brand of neighbouring Laira Vineyard offered to buy fruit from Majella if the land was turned over to Cabernet. The site was planted in 1968, much of the vintages that followed went to Wynn's, but it was not until 1993 that Majella vinified and bottled its own estate labelled wine. The inaugural release was enthusiastically received and Majella have never looked back.

The Lynns have lived at Penola for over four generations, a merchant family, they ventured into grazing. They met with success for their prize Merinos before extending the operations to raising lamb on a piece of choice Coonawarra terroir. Viticulture was the last thing on their minds. The site is now one of the most precious Cabernet vineyards in Coonawarra. Grapes are harvested and brought to the Majella estate wineworks. Fruit is treated to a cool fermentation over the course of several days before transfer to a selection of 300 litres French oak hogsheads for completion of primary ferments, a course of full malolactic and an extended maturation of eighteen months.
Deep, magenta colour. Cherries, choc mint and blackberries, hints of eucalyptus and vanillin oak. Fruit on the attack, structured with layers of flavour, an elegant, medium bodied style. Rich with ripe dark fruits and well weighted, grainy tannins. As ever the finish is long and lingering, a Coonawarra Cabernet of substance and style that will stand the test of time. Varietal definition is its strong point, the tannins are refined, brains, beauty and style, it's a real winner.
