Cullen Mangan Vineyard Semillon Sauvignon Blanc comes from a 5 Star Winery rating by James Halliday Wine Companion 2012.
Di and Kevin Cullen were pioneers in Margaret River and today Cullen is one of Australia’s most highly regarded wineries. Vanya Cullen, Australia’s first female wine judge, and Qantas Winemaker of the Year in 2000, has been relentless in her pursuit of excellence in the Cullen wines, with a great commitment to low yielding, bio-dynamically managed vineyards.
Whilst the Chardonnay, Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and Diana Madeline are widely considered amongst the best of their ilk, the other wines also demonstrate a similar dimension of individuality and quality.
Truly one of Australia’s iconic producers, Cullen wines, under the inspired guiding hand of Vanya, continue to push the boundaries and edge closer and closer to perfection. The 2007 Kevin John took out ‘world Chardonnay of the year’ at the international Wine Challenge in London last year. This year, Jeremy Oliver awarded the 2009 vintage of Diana Madeline his ‘Wine of the Year’ . A fitting award in what is Cullen’s 40th anniversary year!
