Rosé by tradition is a light red wine ideal for summer drinking. Majella has kept the tradition alive with our tenth release of the Melody.
This Majella rosé was made by partial skin contact of Shiraz grapes during fermentation, then the juice and skins were separated and ferment was completed in stainless steel tanks. Bottled in early July under screw cap to retain the fresh fruit aromas.
A bright, pale crimson colour. Fragrant rose & red fruit floral aromas with sweet and soft, finely textured structure. Pretty strawberry, raspberry and pomegranate fruit notes linger on the palate, with a pleasantly soft finish.
It’s a wine for any occasion; serve chilled it’s fantastic as an aperitif, but we reckon it’s the perfect wine for a casual lunch.
Ageing Potential: Produced for early consumption

Majella “Melody” Rosé 2016
Rosé by tradition, is a light red ideal for summer drinking. Majella has kept that tradition alive with our tenth release of the Melody.
The Melody rosé was made with limited skin contact and fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks. The Melody is bottled in July under screw cap to retain the fresh fruit aromas and palate.
The growing season was drier than average, and careful irrigation to optimise flavour development worked very well. Harvest was 2 weeks early, the result of a warmer than average October which advanced the whole season. There was a cooler finish with mild ripening conditions.
The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz have full palate richness whilst being medium bodied with fine tannins & excellent colour. Whites have good natural acidities this year, and show a lot of freshness and tang, with fine fruit flavours.
A bright, pale crimson colour. Fragrant rose and red fruit floral aromas with sweet and soft, finely textured structure. Pretty strawberry, raspberry and pomegranate fruit notes linger on the palate, with a plesantly soft finish.
Cellaring: The Melody has been made to enjoy now.
