A pioneer of Margaret River wine, Cullen always produce long-lived wines of highly individual style from their mature estate vineyards. The 2020 Cullen Red Moon is a blend of 52% malbec, 38% petit verdot and 10 % merlot, all grown on Mangan Vineyard. It has had no fining and has spent 7 months in 15% new oak. Hand harvested and naturally fermented, it is a wine which reflects the land where it is grown.
This delivers a vibrant, aromatic wine opening with aromas of plum, cherries and plenty of floral notes. The palate is medium bodied with dark cherries, blueberries and savoury notes on the finish. An easy-drinking red offering from Cullen that offers plenty of enjoyment in the short to medium-term.
"94 Points. Cherry, fresh blackberry, a fair bit of wild herb and floral perfume here too, and an earthy spicy character. It’s crisp, medium-bodied, a cool glassy and ‘mineral’ feel to acidity, so lively, slate-like grip to tannin, kind of chewy, with bright cranberry acidity to close and a pleasant chicory bitterness. It’s what you might call an ‘original’ wine style, and strange to say, perhaps, but feels Italianate to me. I really like it."- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, 31 March, 2022
A pioneer of Margaret River wine, Cullen always produce long-lived wines of highly individual style from their mature estate vineyards. The philosophy of Cullen Wines is to search for the best quality expression of the vineyard in the wine. The maritime climate, rocky soils, dry farming and biodynamic practices all help to create individual and diverse wine styles which are unique to Cullen.
The maritime climate of Margaret River allows a near perfect environment in which to grow the finest quality grapes. The rocky soils produce low yielding intensely flavoured grapes and the flavour of these grapes is what creates the fabric for the wine style at Cullen.
The vines are dry farmed, helping to ensure maximum fruit quality, and all pruning and harvesting are done by hand with great care. Quality is paramount and when the hand-harvested grapes arrive at the winery from the vineyard, they are sorted again to ensure that only the best goes into the bottle.
Biodynamic practices and minimal intervention apply to both vineyard and winery with all wines being naturally fermented.
As time passes, a greater understanding of the vineyard and grapes is gained and this makes possible the creation of a more individual wine style.
