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 for Merino wool production. Majella now has 61ha under vine and makes some of the finest wines in Coonawarra.
Universally regarded as one of Coonawarra's greatest wines, it continues to win trophies and medals throughout Australia and the world. The wine is dark magenta in colour, with a deep ruby red hue. Mint, eucalypt, dark fruit with savoury, toasty aromas are paired with a fresh, structured palate of mint and cassis supported by classic mulberry and plum characters. Fine tannins and good length. Drink now or wait 12 - 15 years.
A very stylish and elegant varietal bouquet. The palate is still fresh and only just starting to show some maturity with excellent oak integration and slightly grippy tannins. Price: $35.00; Rating: 97-100 Points; Winestate Magazine; 2020 Wine of the Year Annual
Pristine blackcurrant and bay leaf flavours come whispered with toasty, cedar wood oak. Truth is though that it tastes of Coonawarra and of cabernet sauvignon and of not much else, in the best of ways. Essence of the variety and of the region. It draws confidently through the palate and is satisfying and then some through the finish.
