Doug and Emma Bowen graduated from Roseworthy before settling down to establish a hands on winemaking venture which became one of the Coonawarra's salient estates. Shiraz vines are hand pruned and trellised to the hanging cane method, allowing the fruit to utilize the sunshine for the development of optimum ripeness and flavour. The grapes are harvested, crushed, inoculated and vinified on skins for several days. A third of the wine is barrel fermented in new wood each year. After separating from the solids lees and racking, the wine is monitored throughout malolactic fermentation, followed by a transfer into 225 litres American oak barriques where it rests for up to twenty months.
 
Deep red in colour, purple hues. The nose exhibits rich cherry and spice notes. Seductive spicy Shiraz fruit richness on the palate gives way to a fine tannin structure. This well rounded wine shows great medium palate weight with the length strengthened by the use of American oak. A match with roast lamb, rich stews and mature cheddar.

A third of the fruit is barrel fermented in new oak each year. Batches are monitored through to completion of malolactic, racked off settled lees solids and treated to an extended maturation in a selection of 225 litres French, American and European oak barriques.

Majella founders George and Brian Lynn planted six acres of Shiraz in 1968. The grapes were initially sold to Eric Brand of Laira, who made wines for Thomas Hardy. There wasn't a lot of money in it, but it complemented the sheep enterprise, so eventually some seventy acres were planted, 60% being Shiraz. As ever, the fermentation was completed in 300 litre barrels and the wine was then aged for a further twenty two months in predominately American oak. A great example of Coonawarra Shiraz at its very best, immediately palatable as a young wine after a slight breathing, offering excellent ageing potential of eight to ten years.
 
Deep, dark purple in colour. The nose is spicy with hints of cherry, dark chocolate and cedary oak. The wine has a robust palate showing great berry characters with hints of cloves, cinnamon, chocolate and black pepper. The substantial palate is supported by tannins which are soft and accomodating, complementing the long, lingering finish.
