Cullen Diana Madeline 2008 (Margaret River)
James Halliday, Wine Companion, 11 August 2011
Grown in the ancient soils of Wilyabrup, Cullen wine comes from the heart of the land rather than the mind of the winemaker. They are the only biodynamic and carbon positive winery in the region.
Biodynamic viticulture is a philosophy combining the maintenance of sustainable soil fertility and the recognition of the synergy between plant growth and the rhythms of the cosmos. It is a method of farming that treats the vineyard as a living system, which interacts with the environment to build a healthy living soil that helps to nourish the vines and general environment.
Since 1971 when the Cullen Estate was planted, chemical intervention was minimal and the family’s concern for the environment paramount.
The Cullen Diana Madeline is the flagship of the Cullen Winery, showcasing the pinnacle of Australia’s Cabernet Blends.
