The Wynns, Hardy and Brands Laira labels all played a role in establishing Majella as a regional flagship and leading Coonawarra winemaker. Majella’s estate grown Riesling comes from a single vineyard, the Silica block, established 1994. Fruit is harvested and gently pressed with very limited skin contact to preserve fruit aromas and flavours while minimizing phenolics. Juices are vinified in chilled fermenters and bottled as a young wine to retain crisp citrus freshness.
Light straw green hues. Expressive of red apple and blossoms, lime pith and pear aromas. A mouthful of deliciously dry fruit that's articulate of its Coonawarra provenance, apple and pear flavours share centre stage, citrus, seashell and calico characters in support. The palate is lined with refined chalky minerality, fresh and precise, lingering long, crisp and bone dry.
