Notes sourced from Cullen
Complexity and texture are hallmarks of the Cullen Chardonnay. The fruit for this wine is harvested at varying degrees throughout vintage to contribute a range of flavours.
The wine is fermented with natural yeasts and maturated in French oak for seven to ten months. In order to preserve flavour and texture the wine has, if any at all, a light fining and filtration just prior to bottling. Cullen Chardonnay will cellar well for up to ten years.
As in 2002, the fruit was picked at Baumés ranging from about 12.5 to 14.0°. The wine was fermented by wild yeast in new French barriques. It remained in oak for four months, before being coarsely filtered and bottled.
Brilliant light gold colour. Complex grapefruit and lemon aromas and barrel ferment characters are balanced by just the right amount of vanillin oak. Delicious soft and round velvet fruit flavours are complemented by good clean oak and firm but not harsh acidity.
Cellar 5 years.
A beautifully crafted, perfect marriage of barrel ferment inputs, fruit and controlled oak; rich but not heavy, developing very well.
