Winemaking Notes

Bouquet: Diana Madeline 2018 has delicious aroma presentation of mulberry, cherry, rose, violets, dark chocolate, ironstone with completely intoxicating nectar. Classic old vine Cullen Wilyabrup, Cabernet Sauvignon.

Palate: A powerful wine with fruit spreading across the palate. An abundance of fine tannins enhance the detail of Cabernet Sauvignon. Balanced with rose, violets and a compote of fruit, mulberry, plum, and cassis – deliciously dense with fruit. Smooth long flavour. Quintessential Diana Madeline in a great year.

New label. Looks more like the Vanya offering now. I like it. Exquisitely perfumed and balanced Cabernet of perfect proportion and weight. Flowers, cherry, dark chocolate, spicy biscuit and lead pencils. Depth of fruit and ncentration, yet still comes over as svelte and fine, with freshness and fragrance, earthy bass notes, a rich seam of graphite tannin, and a long resonant finish. It’s a sensational vintage for Cullen Cabernet.

I’ve been waiting for this wine to be released, knowing how good the 2018 vintage was in Margaret River. In fact, it goes further than my lofty expectations. Super-concentrated deep blackcurrant, mulberry and dark, plummy, chocolate flavours. There is an extraordinary brightness and vitality on the nose with exotic violet perfumes. Impeccably poised. A wine that will drink well into the second half of this century. 99/100

Deep, bright, youthful, concentrated purple/red colour which stains the glass. The aroma is fresh and young, fruit-driven and impressively concentrated; essency, with masses of blueberry, cassis, violet and blackberry flavours, underlined by a firm tannin backbone. There is cedar aplenty and loads of cabernet character. The tannins are very firm and it needs more time to mellow. The concentration has ramped up to a new level here. A high-quality wine of enormous potential. (79% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 6% cabernet franc, 5% malbec, aged in 50% new oak).

Om Cullen Wines

Tilbage i 1965 begyndte Diana og Kevin Cullen at kigge på alternative måder, at dyrke deres jordarealer på. Det ledte til, at de i 1966 plantede de første vinstokke med hjælp fra venner og kolleger. Ved en fejl, og mens Diana og Kevin var bortrejst, blev vinstokkene sprøjet med gift og trukket op af jorden.

Få år senere, i 1971, plantede Diana og Kevin nogle nye vinstokke, denne gang på deres egen jord i Wilyabrup. Det er her den nuværende vinmark ligger og er i brug den dag i dag.

I 1995 blev den tilstødende vinmark, Mangan Vineyard, beplantet og man påbegyndte samtidig biodynamisk druedyrkning på begge vinmarker. Druer fra disse to områder bruges eksklusivt til Cullen Wines’ vine hvert år.

Igennem årene har Cullen Wines udviklet sig til at være en ikonisk vingård, der altid har været fokuseret på kvalitet, integritet og bæredygtighed på alle niveauer i virksomheden.
