Cullen Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2012 12% 750ml

Cullen Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2012 12% 750ml

Aroma:
Delightful combination of fresh cut grass, water cress, savoury and vanillin oak aromas.
Palate:
Deep, rich and vibrant fruit and mineral flavours. Very complex, integrated and long and supplied with a great acid drive. A great example of this wine style.

Expert Review:
James Halliday- 94 Points, A 54/43/3% blend of sauvignon blanc, semillon and verdelho; wild yeast-fermented; but only 6% barrel-fermented in French oak. Vibrantly fresh, and with great length to its citrus/lime/lemon fruit, balanced acidity driving the finish. Cullen says cellar now to 15 years. Drink by: 2017. James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, July 2014

On the advice of eminent agronomist Dr. John Gladstones, Dr. Kevin and Diana Cullen planted a trial acre of vines at Wilyabrup, Margaret River in 1966. Commencing in 1971, 18 acres of vines were planted on their sheep and cattle farm, including their first Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc were planted between 1976 and 1978. In 2005, the iconic Diana Madeline Cabernet Merlot was elevated to the top Langton's classification category of 'Exceptional'. All Cullen Wines are grown on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate.
