2020 The Musician
The colour is vibrant deep ruby red with a crimson hue. Fresh mint, eucalyptus and spice make up the lifted nose. The palate is soft and well balanced, with blackberries and cassis flavours with supple soft tannins. A perfect pairing of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Majella “The Musician” 2020
This Classic Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz was produced by Majella Wines from grapes grown on the Majella vineyard in Coonawarra, South Australia.
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 for minimal oak contact. It was then blended and bottled as a young red to retain freshness.
The 2020 vintage in Coonawarra can be characterised by small quantities of high quality fruit. The season began well with ideal soil moisture due to good rainfall between May and September. Coonawarra has been very fortunate not to have been affected by the bush fires that occurred throughout the Australian 2019/2020 summer.
Across the region, whites were picked in March, with the first of the reds coming off the vines late March, beginning of April.
Yields are reportedly down due to a cool Spring, however, the fruit is looking fantastic – small berries, great fruit concentration and lovely tannins. Warm days and cool nights provided the perfect ripening conditions for Coonawarra’s signature variety, Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested mid-April.
The 2020 Coonawarra vintage has been free of disease, drought, and smoke taint.The wines at this early stage are looking excellent and 2020 will be a vintage to watch out for!
