  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • This new release of our Amber wine is a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc selected from our certified Biodynamic vineyard. The wine was left on the skins and fermented partially before being pressed off. The skin maceration went from 9 days to 44 days depending on the parcel. The fruit was processed in different vessels: open fermenters, closed tanks as well as amphorae. This explains some of the complexity and the many layers of this wine. We look at it being a natural step in creative as well as artisanal winemaking.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Pale Amber colour. Very complex aromas already with orange bitters, almonds and a hint of honeysuckle. This wine has a textural and concentrated palate with great length and persistence. Delightful notes of orange, toffee and gentle saltiness on the finish. It is a tannic wine.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • 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.

    MIKE BENNIE - THE WINE FRONT


    Scents of lemon balm, faint toast, sea spray, green herbs. Beautiful. Palate is elegant and sleek, shows licks of nuttiness and clove spice, drives well, finishes soft and powdery. Delicious, and such a sense of energy to the wine. Superb now, but should age wonderfully too. 94+ Points
