A pioneer of Margaret River wine, Cullen always produce long-lived wines of highly individual style from their mature estate vineyards. The 2018 Cullen Mangan Vineyard Red Moon is a blend of 57% Malbec, 37% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot, which 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. 61% malbec, 39% petit verdot. An arresting colour in the glass, bright deep crimson right to the edge. The bouquet is like a melange of wild vine and forest berries with raspberry, mulberry and redcurrant amongst them, a trace of perfume drifting in the background. Juicy and exuberant in the mouth, the red fruit flavours and youthfully grippy tannin vying for attention"- Steven Creber, - Halliday Wine Companion 2021, August 2020.
"94 Points. Malbec and petit verdot. A brighter, vibrant expression of ‘luncheon Claret’ with tension, wonderful tannin profile and mouth-watering acidity strong features. Black berry, sage and bay leaf notes, faint sea spray and a whiff of liquorice. Feels very fine, actually. Polished and poised. Really gluggable at the same time, curiously. Excellent wine.

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.
