2011 DIANA MADELINE, Cullen. Margaret River, Western Australia

Organic

Alcohol Percentage: 12.5%
Grape Variety: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot; aged for 19 months in French oak (half new oak)
Producer: One of the first estates (1965) in this now much-admired region near Perth, Cullen is now run by Di and Kevin's daughter Vanya. She has converted the whole estate to full biodynamics and continues to win accolades at almost every major wine show
Cellar Potential: 2020+
Old Bridge Rating: This is fine, serious, ageworthy Aussie Cabernet. Will undoubtedly mature into something very comparable to a top claret from a ripe vintage
Press Reviews: Tyson Stelzer review 26th July 2013:
98 Points Drink: 2031-2046
The marvels of superfine graphite structure, euphoric fragrance and enduring longevity achieved in the Cullen vineyard at just 12.5% alcohol are without precedent anywhere in the country. The sheer tannin shape of this wine is mesmerising, with enduring grip that will sustain it for at least three decades, yet the epitome of finesse and unashamedly medium-bodied. The clarity of violet perfume and depth of pristine red- and blackcurrants is faultless, perfectly framed in tobacco leaf, cedar, coffee bean and high cocoa dark chocolate.
