Cullen Diana Madeline 2010 Margaret River
94 Parker Punkte - Best Ever
Lisa Perrotti Brown / Aug. 2012:
Cullen Diana Madeline 2010

Composed of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 Diana Madeline was aged for an average of 19 months in French barriques, 51% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it offers an intense perfume of crushed black currants, blackberry preserves and mulberries with underlying clove, cedar, yeast extract, black olive and damp loam hints. The modest light to medium-bodied palate really packs the flavor into an elegant package with layer upon layer of youthful blackberry and spice flavors supported by a firm level of finely grained tannins and crisp acidity, finishing long. It should drink best 2015 to 2028+.

Cullen Chardonnay 2014 Kevin John Margaret River
96+ Parker Punkte für 2013
Lisa Perotti Brown bewertet den Cullen Chardonnay Kevin John im Aug. 2012

Gorgeous struck-match and savory, yeasty notes over a core of grapefruit, peaches, marmite, cashews, orange blossoms and ginger lead the 2013 Chardonnay Kevin John. This Chardonnay is a richer, concentrated style with layers of flavor and a wonderfully creamy texture. It has a very long finish.

Vanya Cullen has so many new and exciting projects going on at her winery, I could have happily spent a week or more in her sagely company instead of my requisite three hours. 100% Biodynamic since 2004, Vanya makes no secret of her passion for purity and sustainability. Readers will note that I refrained from using the term "natural" here as this has sadly become something of a dirty word of late and it would be wrong for anyone to unassumingly tar this conscientious winery at the pinnacle of quality with the same brush. This said, Vanya has created a brand new orange wine (as in a white wine produced from extended skin maceration to such an extent that the phenolics oxidize, producing an orange color). I don't say this about many orange wines but "Amber" is very good indeed and well worth checking out. Vanya has also produced Fruit and Flower day harvested barrels of the 2014 "Legacy Series" Kevin John Chardonnay, which yield some evocative and, dare I say, pretty convincing differences for all the biodynamic unbelievers (see my tasting notes). Interestingly, Cullen Wines even uses biodynamic barrels, which means the wood is harvested only on fruit and flower days. When I raised my eyebrows about this, Vanya insisted that Tonnelierie Bordelais produce a certificate of authenticity for these barrels. Hmmm. Anyway, back to what's in the glass, the other major vinous treat for me was a preview of the new "Vanya" Cabernet Sauvignon label, which pushes the already high Margaret River Cabernet bar up just that much higher.


97 Punkte James Hallidays Winecompanien 2013:

Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, and wild-yeast-fermented in two-thirds new French barriques, one-third one-year-old, before spending a further five months in those barrels. The colour shows some development, and the bouquet and palate are appropriately complex. The texture and mouthfeel are supple and round, the white peach, cashew and fig flavours coursing in an unbroken stream through to the finish and aftertaste. The length of the finish is prodigious.
