About The Wine
Few put out a better blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc than Vanya Cullen.
The fruit from her biodynamically farmed vineyards packs in the flavour. She uses barrel ferments and maturation to perfection. The balance of the final composite blend never a hair out of place. Clearly one of the benchmarks for the SSB/SBS wines in the west.
It's long lived in the cellar yet drinks excellently now on release. A class act white from a class act producer.
The Cullen property has been in the Cullen family since 1948 with founders Diana Madeline and Kevin John planting the first vines on the farm in 1971.
Today Cullen sits as one of the top estates in Margaret River. Their impeccable versions of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are now both considered clear regional benchmarks.
The Cullen estate is farmed with a strict adherence to the principals of biodynamic farming. Current day owner and winemaker Vanya Cullen is one of the most outspoken advocates of the benefits of these practices in the industry and her results speak for themselves.
These are extraordinary wines that hold their own against the world's best. A gem of the Australian wine scene, to be sure.
