2021 Mangan Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

2021 marks 50 years of winegrowing at Cullen Wines.

This wine is a blend of 59% Sauvignon Blanc, 35% Semillon, and 6% Verdelho from Mangan vineyard.

The wine is made from 100% certified biodynamic carbon positive fruit. This fruit has been hand harvested on 100% flower days, including one flower Moon opposite Saturn harvest. There has been no additions of yeast or acid, and very low yields have given concentrated delicious fruit to make a pure wine of place. The cooler season as given tremendous acidity and freshness.

Vintage Notes

The 2021 harvest was defined by Covid and staff restrictions for hand harvesting. The low yields ensured that the crop was harvested at optimal condition and ripeness. Bird pressure was high and rain events during the growing seasons and also throughout harvest provided challenges.

In spite of these adverse conditions, in Wilyabrup, we finished harvest in good time and are very happy with the wines. Standout varieties: chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon.
