WA 93 The Bordeaux varietals begin with the 2005 Merlot Brookman Vineyard. Sourced from a 65-year-old vineyard, it is opaque purple-colored with an expressive perfume of toasty oak, mulberry, blackberry, black raspberry, and chocolate. Layered, rich, and thick, it can be drunk now but will evolve for 5-7 years. JM Oct 2007.
WA 92 The 2006 Bordeaux varietals begin with the 2006 Merlot Brookman Vineyard. Velvety textured and approachable now, it will nevertheless evolve for 5-7 years and drink well through 2020. JM Feb 2009.
WA 92 The wines made from Bordeaux varietals begin with the 2007 Merlot Brookman which spent 18 months in 85% new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits a superb nose of toast, pencil lead, spice box, black currant, and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with a supple texture, excellent grip, and complex, savory flavors. This lengthy effort will round out with an additional 3-4 years of cellaring. JM Oct 2009.
WA 91 2008 Brookman Vineyard Merlot presents a deep garnet-purple color and moderately pronounced notes of macerated plums, blackberries, cloves, pencil shavings and a whiff of stewed tea. With a structure of medium-high acid and a medium-firm level of chewy tannins, it’s well balanced with the condensed full-bodied fruit, finish long. Delicious now, it should keep to 2014+. LPB Dec 2010.
Trophy, Limestone Coast Wine Show 2017. The 2016 Majella Merlot is a luscious and elegant wine showing spicy red fruit and vanilla aromas, with a nice intensity and length of red berry fruit and subtle oak integration on the palate. Fermentation was finished in 300 litre French oak barrels (about 30% new oak) and after MLF the wine was further aged for another 15 months in the same barrels. A fantastically flavoured Coonawarra Merlot that adds great intensity and complexity to the Majella range. Winner of the Peter Wehl trophy for best Merlot at the 2017 Limestone Coast Wine Show.
