All grapes for this wine are hand-harvested and hand sorted before crushing. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures to retain their freshness. just under 20% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation using only naturally occuring yeast to soften the acidity and emphasise the fruit. A portion of the wine is then aged in French oak barriques for two months, half of which are new oak.
All Cullen Wines are grown on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. Grapes are harvested by hand on fruit and flower days according to the astrological calendar. The wines have no additions of yeast, acid or malolactic culture, and are in this sense natural wines which express the place and land on which they are grown, the vintage and the people
