MAJELLA The Malleea Cabernet Shiraz, Coonawarra 2000

Generous and seductive, Majella The Malleea is typified by intense mocha-berry aromas, ripe tannins, savoury oak and meaty complexity. The wine profoundly epitomises the classic Australian 'marriage' of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz where each component dovetails neatly together. Malleea, meaning "green field", benefits from access to the best vineyard parcels and a rigorous selection process. The wine is batch-vinified at cool temperatures in headed down static fermenters. All parcels are partially barrel fermented to increase flavour complexity. The wine is then matured for around 19 months in new, tightly grained French oak hogsheads to allow the fruit to develop complexity and integration.

Region Coonawarra

Coonawarra

The first vines were planted in Coonawarra by John Riddoch in 1890, however it was not until the renewed interest in table wine production in the 1950's that Coonawarra was brought into the limelight. Located almost 380 km southeast of Adelaide, Coonawarra is today one of the most famous red wine regions in Australia. Its weathered limestone terra rossa soils, avaibility of water and relatively cool maritime climate make it a unique viticultural region. Extremely flat and unprotected, Coonawarra is exposed both to the swinging influences of the cool Great Southern Ocean and hot, dry northerly winds. Spring frosts also pose a major threat with the potential to wipe out entire crops. Mechanical harvesting is widely employed in the region although smaller producers prefer to tend their vines by hand. Coonawarra is best known for classically-styled Cabernet Sauvignon, although in good years, Shiraz from the region is also very compelling.

Winery MAJELLA

In 1968 brothers Brian and Anthony Lynn planted a small vineyard on classic terra rossa over limestone soils. Since 1970 extensive plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz have followed, including new vineyard blocks located on lighter red/grey sandy loams. Cropping levels are kept down to roughly 7 tonnes/ hectare through precision viticulture. Initially grape growers, Majella made its first Cabernet Sauvignon in 1994. The Malleea, a classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz followed in 1998. The Musician, a more affordable Cabernet-Shiraz, was introduced with the 2004 vintage. Winemaker Bruce Gregory says: ‘Good soil, mature grapevines, simple viticultural management and careful attention to detail in the winery has made Majella what it is’.
