Majella, under owner Brian Lynn, craft some of the finest wines in Australia on one of the most revered strips of dirt in the wine world. Coonawarra lies only 60 miles inland, exposed to a maritime climate, with dry and moderately cool summers. Persistent cloud cover generally moderates the ripening period temperatures. The ‘Terra Rossa’ of Coonawarra is Australia’s most famous soil, renowned for its affinity with Cabernet Sauvignon wines. This is a full flavoured red sparkling wine with a subtle balance of fruit and vanilla wood, hints of spice cinnamon and pepper with a presence of yeasty bread characteristics with soft acid balance to finish the palate. It goes well with game, spicy foods and cured meats and is a favourite in Australia on Christmas Day.
