About The Wine

This wonderful value red blend from Vanya Cullen showcases the quality of fruit that she is able to grow on the Mangan vineyard in Margaret River.

Vanya thinks that Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot all do exceedingly well on that block. A blend of the three Bordeaux varieties making a beautifully balanced red that drinks so easily now yet has all the structure and power to go a decade or more in the cellar.

James Halliday awarded the 2016 vintage 96 points making it an excellent vintage of this relatively recent addition to the Cullen stable.

About Cullen

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.

"Bright crimson-purple hue; a super-fragrant bouquet, followed by an immaculately balanced and structured palate full of juicy red fruits. Terrific value, drink any time over the next 20 years." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Offering the fifth release of this new wine. Cullen Wines have been very successful in meeting their aim of producing a wine which, while fruit driven, is of such high quality that it will develop for several years under good cellaring conditions.

This wine was made from a carefully selected blend of Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot grown on the Mangan Vineyard, which has been shown to be ideally suited to nurturing these grape varieties.

These grape varieties all performed very well in this vintage and thus facilitated the production of this particularly flavoursome and complex wine. Another very good growing season with no rain during harvest period.

Blend : Merlot (78%), Malbec (15%), Petit Verdot (7%)
ABV : 13.0%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2030
