Cullen Wines Full Moon Fruit Day Vanya 2019


This is as pure an expression of cabernet as you could imagine. It spent six months in new French barriques and there was no fining, yeast additions, or acid additions. Compelling and engaging on the nose with a bright violet and red fruit aroma plus a little of that vineyard ironstone character. The palate is plush with such a powerful, yet refined fruit expression supported by fine chalky tannins and neatly layered oak. There’s a slinky and silky feel that almost, but not quite, conceals the tremendous power here. I would love to be able to drink this wine when it reaches full maturity and potential but sadly that might be a bridge too far.
