Cullen tasting

Had a good tasting and lunch with Vanya Cullen. She's gone biodynamic, which is pretty rare still in Australia, even though in Europe there are perhaps 200 estates certified (that's just a guess...) and many more who do bits and pieces of biodynamics, or are in conversion. Have the wines improved as a result? Vanya thinks so. I can't comment, because I've never tasted more than a handful of older wines. The current releases are fantastic, though: wines with real interest and complexity, and which are potentially long lived.

Lots of open bottles of wine there...I realize this is a bit self serving on my part, but since you enjoy tasting multiple bottles at one time, do you think about how to save and store them once opened?

...'cause I have a device that helps with that :D


if you're interested. Nice blog keep drinking!

The Cullen range is good. The Mangan is interesting but a full half of the bottles I have tried have had various, loud flaws. Many had a distinct prickle of ferment. I wrote them and they never responded.
