The pick of Coonawarra Shiraz, treated to an extravagantly extended fermentation, for maximal uptake of dense, chocolatey purple fruit flavours, rakish colour and wickedly decadent chewy licorice textures, two years and more on gross sedimentery lees to infuse the wine with wanton richness, while taming and integrating the prodigal tannins. Eventually disgorged to true Methode traditionnelle, Majella is served with the ultimate indulgence, an inclusion of Reserve Vintage Coonawarra Port and dosage liqueur, crowned and resealed.
Majella originally established their Shiraz vineyards in the late 1960s after an understanding that the Hardy's Wine Company would source their production. By the 1980s, Majella were looking for other clients and their fruit wound up in some of the most memorable vintages of Wynns Coonawarra. The quality of Majella's harvest was always paramount but it was not until the 1990s that the pick of the Shiraz crop was set aside for a superior small batch sparkling. Bottle fermented for two or more years on sedimentery lees, followed by the traditional disgorgement, liqueur d’expédition and dosage of rare vintage Port.
TASTING NOTES
Midnight purple hues, effervescence and persitence of elegant bead. Spiced liquorice nose, brambles and bright currants, suet and caraway, carob and cherry ripe. A powerful palate of intensely mouthfilling flavours, layers of fruit are supported by its luxurious creamyness, the savouryness of leather, smokey bacon, olive and espresso. Majella brings out the best in all good food, savoury or sweet, it drinks blissfully just on its own.
About Majella Winery
The Lynn family have been residents of the Penola - Coonawarra district for over four generations, starting out as Store-Keepers and then graduating into grazing
The property on which Majella now stands was originally owned by Frank Lynn, and bought by his nephew, George, in 1960. George and Pat Lynn kept Merinos for wool production on their farm about ten miles away, and had always wanted some good Coonawarra country for their up-and-coming prime lamb enterprise. Viticulture, however, was not on their agenda until 1968. Majella»
