  • Product details
    Named after founder Doctor Kevin Cullen, this exceptional Chardonnay is the pinnacle of Cullen's great winemaking story. With very low yields, it boasts great purity and can be enjoyed now or up to a decade in the cellar from release.
  • Tasting notes
    The intoxicating nose reveals notes of nectarines, white flowers and citrus enhanced by the barrel ageing. The multi-layered and complex palate is wonderfully balanced by the savoury minerality. It’s a luscious blend of white peaches, more nectarines and some creamy notes.

Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Vintage 2016 - Remarkably, this vintage is drinking superbly now and has hit the ground running. It’s full-bodied, ample and generous, with magnificent flavour and richness. A truly glorious chardonnay.

James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

2013 Vintage - Hand-picked on a biodynamic flower day; whole bunch-pressed and wild-fermented in French oak and an egg, with a completely spontaneous fermentation before maturation for 7 months in French oak (30% new). It has brightness and life from the natural acidity remaining after the mlf, the fruit flavours drawn from both citrus and stone fruit inputs. Chardonnay. Drink by 2023

Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age July 2015

Vintage 2013 - Great Margaret River chardonnay. Ripe, unevolved, full of promise, its aromas of peach, cream caramel, smoky lees and classy oak are beautifully integrated. The palate is stylish, sustained and silky with firm backbone.
