These packs represent a fascinating insight into the maturation capacity of the Majella Cabernet and Shiraz. We will be doing them slowly over two consecutive nights.
We will be lead through the wines by Brian (Prof) Lynn.
Night One -
Majella Coonawarra Cabernet 2006 (JH 93) " "Bright deep colour; classic medium-bodied cabernet, at once juicy yet firm, with tannins guiding the long finish; earth yet to appear, but it will." (July 2009)
Majella Coonawarra Cabernet 2013 (JH 95) : "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."
Majella Coonawarra Cabernet 2014 (JH 95) : "The hue is good, although not particularly deep; conclusion of fermentation in barrel integrates the oak better than can be achieved any other way - viz Grange. This is a lovely fruit-sweet (not sugar-sweet) and juicy cassis-laden cabernet ready for immediate drinking - or cellaring for up to 20 years."
The Date and Time:
Friday 3 July at 7pm
Has to be purchased as a pack of six.
