Quite often, when I sit down to taste and write about wine, I think to myself what an odd profession this is, that I’ve somehow got myself into. But some days are better than others, that’s for sure.
The two things here that lift this wine above the pack are texture and length, and both are unquestionably impressive. There’s zing and chalk, intensity, and a lingering aftertaste. In among all that there’s ripe lime, spicy oak, mint nougat, dried pear and cashew. Power delivered on rails of zesty acidity, a saline character, oak certainly present, but not overdone. It’s the very model of a modern Chardonnay. It’s a beauty.

One of the most powerful and extraordinarily intense of this illustrious line. Power of lemon zest, stone fruit and lime. The palate is a powerhouse with a deep and concentrated middle extending urgently to a very long finish. Complex and layered with structure that will handle extended cellaring. One of the very best. 98/100

Bright, medium to full yellow colour. A very complex bouquet of candlewax, beeswax, oatmeal and smoky-toasty cashew nut and roasted almond. Grapefruit and other citrus flavours in the mouth. The wine is beautifully intense and complex, restrained and refined as well as concentrated and elegant, the long-lasting finish showing great balance and harmony. An absorbing wine of great bouquet and flavour, with the full array of chardonnay complexities. The aftertaste seems never-ending.

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.
