Cullen Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The wines of Vanya Cullen have been a pivotal part of the Margaret River’s dominance when it comes to the red blending of Cabernet and Merlot. There is a real passion behind this label, starting in the vineyard that are all farmed bio-dynamically to ensure pristine quality. The aromas of redcurrant and plum are scintillating precursors to a sumptuous palate. It’s firm and elegant with a seamless tannin profile before a long, balanced finish.
