This really is worth getting into... No hesitation, really.
About The Wine
This may be one of the best value Cabernet Merlot blends in Margaret River at the moment.
Vanya Cullen produces some of the best examples of Cabernet blends in the country. Her meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard is producing very high quality fruit for her across the board.
Here, she blends fruit from across her Cullen and Mangan vineyards. It's a wine that has a bet each way - it's approachable now, yet should reveal more layers to itself over the coming decade.
Pitch-perfect for a regional example of this blend. What's not to love?
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.
