The Composer and Musician win trophies at the Cowra Wine Show 2023
Huge Success in Cowra
The Cowra Wine Show is one of the biggest and oldest regional wine shows and was held late last month.
The results were announced last Saturday evening (the 5th August 2023) and Majella's wines really scooped the pool.
The 2021 Majella "The Musician" was awarded the Imperial Hotel Trophy for the Best Dry Red Blend, an outstanding result.
This, however, was outshone by the 2021 Majella "The Composer" which won the Breakout River Meats Trophy for the Best Cabernet Sauvignon, the Benedict Cowra Quartz Trophy for the Best Red Wine of the Cowra Wine Show AND the Trophy for the Best Wine in Show.
The success we have derived is a result of the tireless efforts of the entire Majella team. From the nurturing of the vines to the careful crafting of every wine batch by our skilled winemakers, each member plays a crucial role. Together the team has dedicated countless hours of hard work and commitment to the family owned business.

2021 Composer is Winestate magazine's Cabernet Sauvignon of the year for 2022
We are delighted to have recieved this amazing accolade for the Composer!
“The Composer” by Majella is the newest addition to our range.
It is a finely crafted wine created from selected parcels of estate grown fruit from the Majella vineyard in Coonawarra. It is a fresh, vibrant example of classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Composer is a vivid dark magenta red colour with a bright crimson hue. Lush eucalyptus and red fruit aromas are paired with a bright, flavour filled, medium weighted palate of cassis and red berries. Subtle oak integration enhances the smooth and balanced finish.
