Overview

2014 turned out to be another exceptional vintage for the Mangan Vineyard. A warm ripening period resulted in fruit arriving at the winery in superb condition. Good rain during growing season with no rain at all during January, February and to the end of harvest in March. Low yields and extraordinary compositions: low PH, good acids and flavours just building and building as the grapes continued to ripen. The result is wines across the board which are rich in flavour and style.

Expert Reviews

A 59/39% blend 2% verdelho reflecting the vineyard plantings; wild-fermented, 91% in tank, 9% in 1yo French oak, matured for 4 months. A lively, zesty and flavour-complex wine, the small amount of barrel ferment having a disproportional impact on the texture and structure; lemon juice, lemon zesy and lemongrass all sing siren songs. James Halliday, Rating 93, 22nd September 2015

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.
