  • TASTING NOTE: "This is a triumph for the vineyard in what was a challenging year in Margaret River. Low yields, birds and rain events all conspired to make things tough but a rigorous biodynamic approach in the vineyard and later in the winery has resulted in a magnificent expression of a slightly cooler climate Margaret River cabernet. High end florals on the nose with notes of violet and red berry overpaying the deeper blackcurrant concentration. The oak is well managed and integrated with the tannins firm and chalky providing the structure to support extended ageing. A worthy commemoration of family matriarch Diana Cullen who would have been 100 this year." 98 Points - Ray Jordan, Wine Pilot
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The grapes for this wine were hand harvested on the biodynamic fruit and flower days across 5 picks from the middle of March to the super Moon Flower day two weeks later. It was then aged in 50% new oak for a period of 15 months with barriques and puncheons and biodynamic barrels included. 
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Cullen is a legendary, Margaret River producer. Diana and Kevin Cullen were THE Margaret River pioneers back in the late 60’s planting a trial acre of vines at Wilyabrup in 1966. The encouraging results of this led to the planting of 18 acres of vines in 1971, including their first Cabernet vines. Daughter Vanya Cullen, took over the winemaking in 1989.  Cullen’s vineyards are biodynamically grown with Cullen becoming the first vineyard and winery in Australia to be certified carbon neutral, requiring the calculation of all of the carbon used and carbon dioxide emitted in the winery; the carbon is then offset by the planting of new trees. There is a restaurant onsite which overlooks the historic vineyard and in keeping with the biodynamic philosophies of the winery, 90% of the produce used in the kitchen is grown onsite in 5 separate biodynamic gardens. The wines have received many significant accolades and awards over the years with the Diana Madeline considered by many to be Australia’s greatest Bordeaux blend.
