- 95 James Halliday: “Bright, deep crimson; there is nothing half-hearted about this wine, rather it is a pure evocation of cool grown cabernet, its texture and structure allowing cassis and mulberry fruit, and contrasting touches of black olive, free play, tannin and oak in the backdrop. Seriously attractive.“
- DECANTER Magazin: „Faint mint aromas and blackcurrent fruit- pretty typical of the Coonawarra style. A well-intergrated palate of long, lingering meaty flavours and mouthwatering acidity. Harmonious with a fine, long finish."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Winemaking Majella Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in both static and rotary stainless steel fermenters with fermentation being completed in 300 litre barrels and the wine was then aged for a further 18 months in new and second use French oak hogsheads. All Cabernet Sauvignon parcels are kept seperate to access batch quality prior to blending and bottling off site. Vintage Conditions From a seasonal point of view, April to July 2014 provided an excellent start with averege winter rainfall which set us up for an even budburst with good soil moisture. Spring however was not typical, being very dry and one of Coonawarra's warmest, with temperatures well above average advancing flowering in November by about 2 weeks. Fortunately the warm and dry flowering promoted a fast and even berry set, similar to other excellent seasons, for example: 2001, 2004 and 2010. This warm flowering provided even maturity at harvest with no green berries. Very dry conditions continued through December, consequently berries remained small with thick skins. Ripening was set up perfectly with the vines receiving a refreshing drink of 90mm of rain in mid - January. Coonawarra's summer, in contrast to the spring, has been a classic, with warm days and cool nights, strongly influenced by the January upwelling of the deep, cold coastal waters..... around 5 degrees colder than those off Adelaide. Based on the mild summer, and consequently long ripening period, we are seeing bright fruit, varietal definition and intense colour at moderate sugar.|
