Cullen Wines Red Bordeaux Blend Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Diana Madeline 2001
Perhaps Cullen's best known wine, this blend was recently included in the prestigious Langton classification of Australian wines. The vines planted in 1971 are 30 years old. On average the yields are around two tons per acre, or 26 hectolitres per hectare, giving great concentration to the wine. They are grown on the Scott Henry trellising system, which yields grapes with ripe tannins and flavours. This wine is typically a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The varieties are vinified separately and matured in French oak for 18 months. The result is a deeply coloured wine with great depth of flavour, fine grain tannins and outstanding cellaring potential.
