A wine of complexity, velocity and depth yet scintillating freshness.
About This Wine
This supremely crafted expression of Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is Vanya Cullen's ode to her maternal Grandmother, Grace Madeline Cullen.
Margaret River is arguably ground zero for serious, cellar-worthy examples of this famous Bordeaux white blend. Cullen does it just about better than anyone else.
The balance is spot on, with Sauvignon showing its vivid, vibrant tropical fruit and Semillon lending the spine-tingling acidity and minerality which keeps it focused and set for a long life in the cellar.
Textural, taut and spotless in execution, this is a brilliant release from this star WA 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.
