2012 Cullen Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 1.5L Magnum

  • As usual, this blend contains a greater volume of Sauvignon Blanc than Semillon, which reflects the outstanding qualities of the fruit produced by the former variety on the Cullen Vineyard, while recognising that it can still be enhanced by the complimentary characteristics of the latter variety. The fruit was picked at optimal ripeness, which was represented by Baume’s of only 9.6° – 11.9°, resulting in the highly desirable production of an alcohol concentration of only 10.9%. Complexity and completeness have been enhanced through maturing a substantial component of the wine in new oak.

  • 2012 Vintage Report

    The growing season for the 2012 harvest had good rains followed by the hottest January for many years. Yields were classic and we started on January 31 and finished by 11 March 2012. The Cabernet Sauvignon Diana Madeline block was hand harvested with stunning quality on the full moon fruit days of 7 to 9 March. 2012 was a particularly great vintage for our Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. With sensational expression and power of fruit across all varieties.

  • Bouquet: Delightful combination of fresh cut grass, water cress, savoury and vanillin oak aromas.
    Palate: Deep, rich and vibrant fruit and mineral flavours. Very complex, integrated and long and supplied with a great acid drive. A great example of this wine style.
    Cellar: Enjoy now or for up to 15 years
    Food: All mild seafood and Asian dishes
