Cullen Margaret River White 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Cullen’s 28 hectares of vineyards are located in the Margaret River, an area renowned for producing wines of character and depth. The grapes for this wine come from the subregion of Wilyabrup. Cullen Wines became the first carbon neutral winery and vineyard in Australia. The estate vineyard was certified Organic ‘A’ grade in 2003 and Biodynamic ‘A’ grade in 2004 by the Biological Farmers Association of Australia. The grapes for this wine are grown on the Cullen and Mangan vineyards. The soils here are old, granite and gravely sandy loam, overlaying lateric subsoils. This Sauvignon blend is Light straw in colour with green tinges. On the nose it is lightly perfumed, with hints of lemon, lime and a slightly richer, vanilla custard note added by the Chardonnay. On the palate it is vibrant, rich, round and complex, reflecting the range of varieties in the blend. It is nicely balanced with an attractive weight lifted by a zesty finish.

In the early 1960's detailed climatic studies of various regions in Southwestern Australia revealed that during the winegrowing season, Margaret River's climate was similar to that of Bordeaux, particularly Pomerol. The conclusion that Margaret River was ideal for viticulture was first tested in Wilyabrup in 1966, when Diana and Kevin Cullen planted a trial acre of vines. The encouraging results led to the couple planting 18 acres of vines on their sheep and cattle farm in 1971. Cullen Wines while remaining family owned has since evolved making quality wine from biodynamically grown grapes sourced exclusively from The Cullen Estate Vineyard and Mangan Vineyard. Read less
