Personalised Cullen Vanya Flower Day Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 13.5% 750mlExpert Review:
James Halliday- 98 Points, Hand-picked, wild-fermented in terracotta amphorae, then pressed to French barriques (66% new) for a further 6 months. The only addition was minimal SO2, biodynamic principles followed throughout. The light crimson colour is deceptive, as is the light to medium-bodied palate. The bouquet is ultra-fragrant, the aromas and flavours locked into red fruits, cassis and gentle but persistent tannins. Utterly delicious.
On the advice of eminent agronomist Dr. John Gladstones, Dr. Kevin and Diana Cullen planted a trial acre of vines at Wilyabrup, Margaret River in 1966. Commencing in 1971, 18 acres of vines were planted on their sheep and cattle farm, including their first Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc were planted between 1976 and 1978. In 2005, the iconic Diana Madeline Cabernet Merlot was elevated to the top Langton's classification category of 'Exceptional'. All Cullen Wines are grown on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate.Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
