Majella

“When James Halliday states in the press that you’re the best winery in Coonawarra and a combined team of Bob Campbell M.W, Michael Fridjon M.W and James Halliday rate your top wine the best in all of Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, you know you’ve arrived!
Brian “”Prof”” Lynn would never brag about these accolades but it’s quite clear that he has a lot to be very proud of. The Lynn family have been residents of the Penola area of Coonawarra for four generations and have progressed from being store-keepers to grazers and on to grape growers. Since 1968, the Lynn family have built up one the finest vineyards on one of the most revered “”strips of dirt”” in the wine world.
The famous “”terra rossa”” soils provide a home to 150 acres of vines planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot and Riesling.”

South Australia

Coonawarra is considered the most renowned wine region in Australia. It has the ‘terra rossa’ soils and some great winemakers, and subsequently responsible for some of the best wines produced in Australia. Most notably red wines and Cabernet Sauvignon in particular. The first vineyard was planted in the 1880s at Yallum, (John Riddoch’s). The region did not establish its reputation as a winemaking area until the 1950s when Wynns and Penfolds purchased acreage on the back of a resurgence in the table wine market. Investment by large and small companies led to expansion, securing Coonawarrra’s status as a great wine. The climate is regarded as Mediterranean. The main wine styles: Red – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet-Merlot blend, Shiraz; White – Chardonnay.
