Cullen 2013 Kevin John Chardonnay

Vanya Cullen pays attention to detail in whatever she does; whether that is in her biodynamically managed vineyards, or in the winery. Her icon white wine, named in honour of her father, underlines the benefits of that attitude. It is, quite simply, one of Australia's finest white wines, a chardonnay where brilliant fruit and quality oak come together to create a tour de force. Grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented with wild yeast in French barriques and the fruit underwent natural malolactic fermentation prior to nine months in new and one-year-old oak. The end result; a beguiling combination of tropical fruit and citrus notes with elegance and nutty intensity.$105.
