About

The Cullen Kevin John Chardonnay sits comfortably amongst the pantheon of Margaret River’s finest Chardonnays. In fact, one would not be out of line to suggest it is simply one of Australia’s greatest white wines.

Vanya Cullen’s unrelenting quest for winemaking excellence is beautifully realised in this ode to her late father, Dr. Kevin John Cullen. The man’s passion for Chardonnay from Margaret River was legendary and this wine surely does him proud.

The fruit is hand picked exclusively on fruit days (the days of the biodynamic cycle which optimise fruit flavour) from the immaculate 39-year-old vineyard tended by the Cullen family.

This is a wine of immense power and precision and stands as a constant reminder of the potential of Australian Chardonnay. In his 96 point review of the 2015 release, Gary Walsh said “It’s a beautiful thing. Power with grace.”

What It Tastes Like

“It’s a full golden colour, and the rich theme continues. Pear, sweet spices, ripe lime, fennel and biscuits. Medium bodied, full flavour, oxidative nutty character adds interest and complexity, acidity is flinty and composed, ginger and cinnamon spice studded pear tastiness, and a very long gently powdery, tangerine laced finish. It’s a beautiful thing. Power with grace.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
