Majella Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
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 Merino’s 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.
