This is pretty special. It’s a biodynamic red from Western Australia that weighs in at just 12.5% alcohol, but has no lack of flavour at all. There’s currently a bit of oak sticking out, but this is a super wine that will age well.

Cullen Mangan East Block 2012 Margaret River, Australia
A blend of 54% Petit Verdot, 46% Malbec, aged for 5 months in 3 year old oak, and 1 month in new French oak barrels. Fresh, vivid and slightly gravelly black cherry and plum fruit nose, with some raspberry notes. There’s a bit of sweet vanilla creamy oak, too. The palate has primary fruit with some grippy structure. There’s some sweet oak that needs time to integrate. It’s a lovely sleek wine with great precision of flavour. Massive potential for development. 94/100

One thought on “Cullen Mangan East Block

  1. Good wine but found a great many tainted bottles. Notified the winery but they would not respond. Haven’t bought one of their products since.
