All Cullen Wines are grown on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. Grapes are harvested by hand on fruit and flower days according to the astrological calendar. The wines have no additions of yeast, acid or malolactic culture, and are in this sense natural wines which express the place and land on which they are grown, the vintage and the people

The white wines at Cullen reflect a desire for purity and balance. This we believe comes from the vineyard site itself and the biodynamic philosophy to help the land reflect its best potential in the bottle.

The grapes for both the Chardonnay and the Sauvignon Blanc Semillon are, like all our grapes, harvested by hand and at best flavour expression. For the Chardonnay the bunches are whole-bunch pressed for fruit delicacy and juice quality and then placed into barriques for fermentation with indigenous yeasts. The Sauvignon Blanc is part-fermented in barriques with indigenous yeast and for the most as a tank fermentation to retain fruit freshness. Semillon is fermented in tanks to keep the varietal freshness.

57% sauvignon blanc, 38% semillon, 5% verdelho, 12% fermented and matured in oak (45% new). As ever, fresh, lively and highly expressive, fruit doing all the talking; all sorts of citrus on the bouquet and palate, with lemongrass, gooseberry and precisely judged acidity.
