Expert Reviews

Similar make-up to the Cullen Vineyard, except that picking baumes ranged from 11.5 to 12.2, and only 13% of the sauvignon blanc was barrel-matured; the extra weight and volume of fruit flavour will appeal to some, paradoxically coming from a vineyard that is not certified biodynamic. Drink to 2015: Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Excellent pale straw colour.

Aroma

Attractive lime aromas, with a touch of tropical fruit and minerality that is given extra complexity through the use of indigenous yeast.

Palate

Fresh and mouth-filling citrus flavours are complemented by a subtle lanolin character, with a piercing line of acid running through the palate and binding the structure of this wine together.

Cellar Potential

Already drinking very well, but will develop further complexity for five years and live for far longer.

Food Matching

Crustaceans, fish and mild Asian cuisine.

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.
