Cullen’s 50 hectares of vineyards are located in the Wilyabrup part of Margaret River. Founded in 1971 by Di and Kevin Cullen, the winemaking is now managed by their daughter Vanya. Passion and a strong sense of responsibility to the land define Vanya’s biodynamic approach to viticulture, while pioneering environmental initiatives led to Cullen becoming Australia’s first carbon neutral winery in 2007.
Deep red garnet. The nose has amazing clarity and complexity, with a very attractive combination of violets, rose, cassis and red peppers. Beautifully balanced and long, the palate represents a marvellous blend of rich chocolate, plum, mulberry and notes of cassis. It is concentrated and supported by a beautiful lingering ironstone mineral finish. Fruit purity really stands out. Can be cellared for 10+ years.more ↓ less ↑
