Outrageously tasty! One will be hard pressed to find such a tempered and refined statement in white Grave-like Bordeaux blend at this price!
A founding winery of Margaret River, Cullen was established in 1971 by pioneering winemakers Kevin and Diana Cullen. In redefining the style of Australian Cabernet Sauvignon produced in the 1970s, the fledgling estate caught the attention of the nation. Since then, an unrelenting commitment to quality and site expression has positioned Cullen as one of Australia’s greatest estates – and Margaret River as one of the nation’s premier wine-producing regions. The mature, biodynamically-farmed vineyards produce elegant, age-worthy wines that draw worldwide critical acclaim, including what is regarded by many as the country’s definitive Bordeaux blend.
“The barrel-fermented 2016 Ephraim Clarke Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a 76-24 blend of the two varieties, favoring Sauvignon Blanc. This wine epitomizes the class and elegance achievable with these varieties within Margaret River. The oak adds subtle notes of toasted grain and nuts, the citrusy fruit is rounded and discrete rather than glaringly loud and the long finish leaves behind a silky longing for another sip. A really fine effort.” – 94 points, Wine Advocate
