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.
As ever, has fine but persistent tannins running from the fore-palate through to the finish; the deep and intense fruit will sustain the wine until those tannins loosen their grip. All five Bordeaux varieties present led by Cabernet Sauvignon (75%). Drink by: 2018; Date Tasted: July 2007; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 96 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
Aromas of violet, sweet cherry, berry, bayleaf, a little beef stock and most attractive lead pencil oak with hints of asprin that some young screw-capped wines show. On the palate full bodied but very reserved and controlled with cherry, berry, clove, bayleaf and cedar flavours. Masses of mouthcoating firm tannins and noticeable cheek puckering acidity lay the foundations for decades of development. There is little pleasure to be found in this wine at present so don’t even think about thinking about opening one for at least ten years. It’s great but wait. Tasted: Jube 2007; Alcohol: 14%; Drink: 2018-2030+; Rating: 95+ Points; Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
