Aroma Notes-

Deep crimson hues with magenta edges. Complex vitality with layers of ripe dark fruits enhanced by leafy notes. Structured and fruit-driven, the palate delivers blackcurrant and spicy nuances supported by fine-grained tannins. There is a touch of bitterness melting into the mouth. This is an ethereal Bordeaux Blend. Elegant, boasting of quality and finesse. Distinct mocha and oak notes, wonderful integration of fruit and tannins.

Cullen Margaret River

Cullen Margaret River. Quality, Integrity, Sustainability.


Grown in the ancient soils of Wilyabrup, Cullen wine comes from the heart of the land rather than the mind of the winemaker. The only biodynamic and carbon positive winery and restaurant in the region. You are welcomed to taste their wines at the Biodynamic Carbon Positive Wine Room.


A Brief History
Winegrowing began on the Cullen property in Margaret River 50 years ago. Studies in the early 1960s showed that Margaret River had some very special qualities. The climate was particularly suited to growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. On the advice of eminent agronomist Dr John Gladstones, Dr Kevin and Diana Cullen planted a trial acre of vines at Wilyabrup in 1966. The encouraging results of this led to the planting of 18 acres of vines on their sheep and cattle farm in 1971.

 

Wine Growing 

Cullen wine comes from the heart of the land rather than the mind of the winemaker. At Cullen, they take seriously their job as custodians of the land, to acknowledge the Wadandi people as the previous custodians with respect, and to look after the ancient Wilyabrup soils. Certified biodynamic, they add BD preparation 500 to their soil to create microbiologically active, intelligent soil. They harvest the grapes on auspicious planetary aspects, usually about the Moon, and press them in the winery with no additions at all. This is the purest form of winemaking with respect to place, on some of the oldest, most beautiful land. Wilyabrup’s Mediterranean maritime climate makes it possible to do that year in, year out, and have consistent quality grapes. Some try to tweak nature to make it perfect, Vanya Cullen knows nature is perfect already.
