Majella "The Malleea"
“The Malleea” by Majella continues the great Australian tradition of Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blends. “Malleea”, an Aboriginal term meaning “green paddock” is a great descriptor for the green, lush pastures and vineyards of the limestone coast region in the South Eastern portion of South Australia. First made in 1996, and only produced when growing conditions are perfect for producing premium quality wines.
“The Malleea” is a dark magenta colour, with a vibrant purple hue. This is an intense and beautifully structured wine, featuring lush mulberry, black currant, blackberry and vanillin oak aromas, complimented by the attractive palate of cassis, plums and spice with undertones of mint.
