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. A brighter, vibrant expression of ‘luncheon Claret’ with tension, wonderful tannin profile and mouth-watering acidity strong features. 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.

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
