Product Description

AROMA
Delicious aroma presentation of m ulberry, cherry, rose , violets, dark chocolate, ironstone with c ompletely intoxicating nectar. Classic old vine Cullen Wilyabrup, Cabernet Sauvignon.

PALATE
A powerful wine with fruit spreading across the palate. An abundance of fine tannins enhances the detail of Cabernet Sauvignon Balanced with rose, violets and a compote of fruit, mulberry, plum, and cassis deliciously dense with fruit. Smooth long flavour. Quintessential Diana Madeline in a great year.

WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS
These old vine Cabernet Sauvignon Houghton clones (8 different clones) were planted in 1971 on their own roots and are destined for the flagship wine Diana Madeline. 2018 produced small yields, being 5.88 tonnes per hectare of Cabernet Sauvignon from certified biodynamic, carbon negative fruit. This has created a natural wine with elegance, balance and power.

 

The 2018 Diana Madeline (99 points) is one of the stars of this report and one the greatest editions of this wine yet released. Cullen herself likens it to the legendary 2001 vintage, a wine that is defined by both power and finesse. Both are certainly hallmark traits of this stunning 2018 which stands as a shining example of refinement in Margaret River. This is a superb edition of this revered, cabernet-based blend with such complete, seamless and elegant feel, yet there’s such depth of flavor, too. Aromas of fresh redcurrants, red and violet flowers, subtle spice, fresh earth, paper bark, fresh-picked thyme and sage, red berries and some cedary notes. The palate is stunning and has a brand of elegance with power that is found in only the greatest wines. Pristine mulberries, red plums, blueberries and red cherries sail through layers of fine tannin, into an unwaveringly long and vibrant finish. An exceptionally concentrated and convincing Diana Madeline release, this is one of their finest. A blend of 79% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 6% cabernet franc and 5% malbec. Delicious now, but his will bloom from 2028. 99 Points jamessuckling.com, 29 April, 2020
