Majella Wines 'The Musician' 2018
The wine is balanced, smooth and fruit driven with luscious blackberries and cassis flavours with hints of mint and eucalyptus and supported by soft tannins.
The Musician is made as a light and elegant dry red.
Fermentation was in both stainless steel tanks and oak barrels then aged for a further six months with minimal oak contact. It was then blended and bottled as a young red to retain freshness.
A perfect pairing of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
2018 vintage was an amazing vintage in Coonawarra, with superb conditions
and fruit of outstanding quality being harvested. The yields were moderate,
and the slow cool ripening was very even, delivering fruit with fine tannins
and strong varietal favours. Early indications of the 2018 Vintage suggest
that the grape quality is outstanding. All winemakers in the region are talking
positively with comments that the colour is good, balanced tannins and
good fruit weight
