Cullen Diana Madeline 2020


Darker and deeper in colour to the great 2019. Very much a reflection of the vintage, and I love how different this is to other recent releases and yet seems entirely familiar. Black and bramble fruits, and a compote of summer berries, sweet and tart. Flowers of lavender and violet, sage, cigar box, camphor and coal. Deep and tense, almost overwhelmingly powerful, earthier, grittier than I would have expected. Magnificent as ever. Waters Wine Co

Cabernet sauvignon (92%), merlot, cabernet franc and malbec, hand-picked on fruit days, French oak (50% new) for 13 months. The perfumed bouquet has soaked up the new oak, the purity of the fruit in a cassis/redcurrant/blueberry spectrum. The medium-bodied palate is so perfectly balanced it has a drinking span of 30 years and counting. 98 Points – James Halliday (Weekend Australian)

Dark, deep and a really youthful purple colour in the glass. Lifted and complex aromas of cedar, graphite, blackberry, brambles, violets and a briary underbrush edge. Full, rich, layered and complex, lashings of mulberry and blackcurrant-y fruit, firm, granular, textured tannins and lively acidity. Just beginning its journey and what a journey it shall be. 97 Points – Aaron Brasher, The Real Review
