"The Malleea" by Majella continues the great Australian tradition of Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blends.
The 2014 “The Malleea” is a dark magenta colour, with a bright purple hue. Lush mulberry, black currant, blackberry and vanillin oak on the nose. The layered palate is of cassis, plum fruit and spice with undertones of mint. Fine structured tannins and subtle oak enhance the finish
Truly one of Australia's great wines.
