Cullen Vineyard, with its land, vines, wines and people… is my life’s work. Over the 3 decades of working at Cullen the love for Cabernet Sauvignon has deepened. Planted in 1971, it is the heart and soul of what we do at Cullen. This wine of the 2017 vintage is a tribute to the land and the vines it came from. Pure expression of a great year for Cullen Wines. No additions of yeast, acid, malolactic culture nor fining. The wines grown on these ancient soils are certified biodynamic, carbon neutral and powered naturally by solar power. 2017 was a vintage of great quality and quantity. The fruit was sourced from 100% old vines on Cullen Vineyard. Crop level at 6.9 tons per hectare and it is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon picked on the 3rd of April 2017, which was a MOSH Flower day. The fermentation of both primary and malolactic was natural. The wine spent 107 days in terracotta amphorae before being basket pressed direct to 3 barrels. All of the wine was aged in French oak for 6 months, of which 66% were new. The Alcohol is 13.5%
