It’s rare to find a Cabernet with this level of poise and control.
About The Wine
The Diana Madeline is one of the true icon wines of Australia.
Produced by one of the most respected and renowned wineries in the Margaret River, Cullen Wines, Diana Madeline represents the pinnacle of Australian viticultural and winemaking prowess and is unsurprisingly one of the top 5 most collectable wines in the country.
The Cullen estate is farmed with an almost militant adherence to the principals of biodynamic farming. Owner/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.
The 2016 vintage looks set to be an instant classic, a Cabernet for the ages. As Gary Walsh described it in his remarkable 96 point review, "Yet again, Cullen is leading the pack." If you want to try the very best that Australia has to offer, the 2016 Diana Madeline is a wine you need in your cellar.
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.
