2017 was another exceptional vintage for the Mangan Vineyard. Sauvignon Blanc did especially well and we had a great end of the season delivering very high quality fruit. Quantity was good too after 3 small vintages in a row. The wines display great purity of fruit and will age beautifully. This wine has seen no oak to capture the essence of the Mangan Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc.
Complex aromas of asparagus, green apple and gooseberry. The palate has plenty of drive and displays intense notes of green mango, gooseberry. The finish is lifted by a terrific citrus and lime acidity.
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.
