Cullen Wines Red Bordeaux Blend Margaret River Diana Madeline 2008

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 wine is deep inky red in colour with perfumes of chocolate and blackberries on the nose. On the palate the balance is perfect, with beautifully judged tannins set against concentrated, blackcurrant fruit. Long and spiced to the 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

Vintage: 2007 12/31/2010

Very concentrated, reticent nose evokes hints of sweet cinnamon and nutmeg. The full flavors explode with texture and coat the palate with the finest of tannins. The palate is compact, yet at the same time intimates that more flavors will unfurl with... Chuck Hayward.
