Majella The Musician Cabernet Shiraz 2015 ~ Coonawarra, South Australia
90/100 James Halliday
James Halliday Five Star Winery
Campbell Mattinson "Great buying. Beautifully presented"
James Halliday "....Vibrant, with real flow from beginning to graceful end, this elegant wine is ready to drink now....High pitched red and black currant aromas are varnished with hints of licorice and Australian scrub, as blue gum menthol notes streak across the grainy, mid-weighted palate."
Chris Shanahan "The wine delivers Coonawarra’s deep, ripe, berry flavors, medium body and elegant structure, without the overlay of oak or other winemaker inputs seen in wines made for cellaring."
Winsor Dobbin, Launceston Examiner "When it comes to affordable reds for everyday drinking it's hard to go past this delicious blend"
Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age "If you like classically minty Coonawarra reds you'll enjoy this."
Majella is one of the most awarded small Australian wineries. It is family owned and based in the famous Coonawarra wine region of South Australia. The Coonawarra wine region is characterized by its soils, known far and wide as “terra rossa” - literally “red earth”.
The Coonawarra “terra Rossa” forms a long, linear shape, little more that 20km long, and in parts only a few kilometres wide.
This soil is regarded as one of the premium viticultural soils of the world and Majella is fortunate that its vineyards are situated on the eastern edge of this famous “red strip”.
