Majella was acquired by George Lynn in 1960 as part of an up and coming lamb enterprise. He had always been great friends with Eric Brand, who'd just started producing his illustrious Laira label. Eventually, seventy acres of about 60% Shiraz were planted, but as the vines matured in the 1970s, demand for grapes, particularly Shiraz was very low, and there were a couple of years when thirty or more tonnes of premium grapes were left to rot. Today, Majella stands proudly in first place on the Coonawarra Shiraz dais. As always the fermentation is completed in a selection of French and American oak hogsheads, followed by an extended eighteen months maturation.
Dark red colour with purple hues. Redolent of cinnamon spice with overlays of cedary mocha oak. The palate shows great length, full of plums, cherries, blackberries and vanilla, creamy and sweet. Tannins are soft and dusty, complementing the long, lingering finish. Coonawarra Shiraz at its very best. A decadent accompaniement to cherry glazed duck or crackling rib of pork.
