Description

Cullen Mangan Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Cullen Mangan Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon has a bouquet that combines very intense lifted aromatic lime, guava and green pineapple aromas.

Cullen Mangan Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is rich and flavoursome, the palate is a blend of paw paw, lime and nougat with a touch of spice. The good acid ensures that the finish is delightfully crisp. Delicious!

“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 9.9° – 12.8°. Complexity and completeness have been enhanced through maturing a substantial component of the wine in new oak. 1768 dozens produced.”

Founded in 1966 by Di and Kevin Cullen, the winemaking is now managed by their daughter Vanya.

Terroir:-

Passion and a strong sense of responsibility to the land define Vanya’s organic and biodynamic approach to viticulture, whilst pioneering environmental initiatives led to Cullen becoming Australia’s first carbon neutral winery in 2007.

Vanya’s philosophy is to make wines that are the best expression of the vineyard, with the maritime climate, rocky soils, dry farming and biodynamic practices combining to create the individual and diverse wine styles that characterise Cullen.

This approach is totally reflected in the Cullen Mangan Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon. Wines are now made exclusively from the Cullen Estate Vineyard (planted 1971-1976) and the Mangan Vineyard (planted 1995-1997).

The Mangan vineyard, which is owned and managed by Rick Cullen, is dry farmed and maintained using a biodynamic approach to viticulture.

Soils are old, granite and gravely sandy loam, overlaying lateric subsoils. Fruit was picked over three weeks at 10 – 13.8° Baumes, when it had reached the perfect level of freshness, richness and complexity. (cullenwines.com.au)

Domaine Patrick Vauvy Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.
