The first vintage was in 1972, and from then until 1991 the Lynn’s were purely grape growers, selling their production to larger wineries, predominately to Wynn’s Coonawarra Estate.

In 1991 a decision was made to make 10 tonnes of Shiraz into wine. This was done at the Brand Family’s “Laira” winery by Bruce Gregory, who along with the late Jim Brand was a winemaker there. Gradually more and more grapes were converted into wine until we decided to build a winery here on the Majella property.

That winery was completed in late 1998, and at the start of 1999, Bruce joined the Majella Team and production commenced at the new Majella Winery. From 2002 onwards all the grapes grown on the Majella vineyards have been processed on-site and packaged under the Majella label.

The Malleea is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from the oldest vines on the Majella estate.

A blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz from the oldest vines on the Majella estate.

Prime quality. Smooth as silk. Pure, rich blackcurrant, plum, and boysenberry with cedar wood highlights. Acidity is slightly nervy but the quality of the fruit more than compensates. Indeed sweet fruit flavour extends beautifully out through the finish.

Tasting Profile

“The Malleea” by Majella continues the great Australian tradition of Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blends. “Malleea”, an Aboriginal term meaning “green paddock” is a great descriptor for the green, lush pastures and vineyards of the limestone coast region in the South Eastern portion of South Australia. First made in 1996, and only produced when growing conditions are perfect for producing premium quality wines. Individual parcels of fruit are fermented in small static fermenters for 5 days, then transferred to new, French oak barrels to finish fermentation. The wine parcels are then aged for another 18 months before individual barrels are selected by our winemakers for their exceptional quality to become the Malleea blend.
