Origin: Margaret River / Western Australia / Australia
Cullen Wines is a certified biodynamic, carbon neutral and naturally powered estate, with their philosophy summed up in three simple words; ‘Quality, Integrity and Sustainability’. It is one of the oldest and most awarded family wineries in Wilyabrup, in Western Australia’s famous Margaret River region. First established in 1971 by Dr Kevin and Diana Cullen and now run by their daughter Vanya, the winery has built an outstanding reputation for fine certified biodynamic wines that receive critical national and international acclaim. In 2019, celebrating 30 years at the helm, Vanya received double Winemaker of the Year honours at both the Australian Women in Wine Awards and the Halliday Wine Companion Awards.
One of the most pristine wines out of Margaret River, this has all the classy grapefruit peel and lemon pith one associates with Margaret River, plus that deeply powerful background intensity of green mango thanks to the local clone of Chardonnay. These wines age magnificently, and under screwcap they look phenomneal at 10 years. They age gracefully and give many a white burgundy a run for their money on complexity and length. Named after Vanya’s father.
