Overview

This quality wine was produced from fruit grown entirely on our biodynamic, carbon neutral and naturally-powered estate. It is made from a blend of two thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one third Merlot and was fermented using wild yeast. Eighty five percent of the wine was matured for 18 months in French oak barrels, of which 25% were new. There are very attractive fresh blackcurrant, rosemary and ironstone aromas on the nose and the palate is long and textured, with supple tannins in its middle region. Will mature well for at least 20 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Winemaking began on the Cullen property in Margaret River less than 40 years ago. Studies in South Western Australia conducted in the early 1960Â?s showed that Margaret River had some special qualities. The climate was particularly suited to growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. On the advice of eminent agronomist Dr John Gladstones, Kevin and Diana Cullen planted a trial acre of vines at Willyabrup in 1966. The encouraging results of this led to the planting of 18acres of vines on the sheep and cattle farm in 1971, including their first Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc were planted between 1976 and 1978. Cullen Wines has since evolved into an estate specialising in single vineyard, premium quality wines focussed on wine integrity, rather than rapid expansion.
