Sommelier Notes

Named after her father Dr Kevin John Cullen, Vanya Cullen's bio-dynamic vineyard has been producing revered wines since 2003. This is the top offering from the Cullen vineyard, features flavours of dried pear, honeysuckle, spicy vanilla oak and ginger biscuits. Medium to full bodied, flavoursome, creamy and glossy, spicy oak showing as a young wine, smooth glycerol texture with dry flinty acidity and a long dried banana and pear aftertaste. Citrus too, but richer flavours with this vintage.

Don't miss this opportunity to try a one of the greats!

Description

This Vintage is sold out at the Cellar door.  Although the weather leading up to and including vintage was warm, the fruit produced by all varieties in the vineyards of Cullen Wines in 2014 was exceptional. We had no rain in January, February and until the end of harvest in March. These low yields, fantastic PH and great acids levels translated in wines of great flavour and style. The Chardonnay grapes were hand harvested on fruit days from 38 year old vines. They were then whole bunch pressed and fermented with wild yeast in French barriques. It underwent natural malolactic fermentation prior to receiving 8 months of oak maturation.
