Brian "Prof" Lynn, the effusive, yet
self-deprecating voice of Majella Estate would never brag about his
accolades but it's quite clear that he has a lot to be very proud
With some fantastic grapes, one of
Australia's best winemakers and a state of the art winery, Majella
craft some of the finest wines in the country.
Over time, on what was originally a barrel shed in Coonawarra,
the Lynn family have built up one the finest vineyards 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 isAustralia's most famous soil,
renowned for its affinity with Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
Bruce Gregory, formerly of Brands Laira winery, made the first
wine for Majella and has made every one ever since - becoming full
time Majella winemaker in 1999. Bruce is also the brains behind one
of Australia's finest wines, The Malleea. This flagship wine
is a masterpiece which, along with the Majella Cabernet Sauvignon,
has entered the Langton´s classification of Australia's Best
