Cullen Mangan Vineyard Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2015

£16.99

 

TASTING NOTE

Fresh lemon curd, cut grass and nettle aromas with hints of biscuit and nuts. The palate has a pleasing creamy texture and displays intense lemon and lime citrus fruits with cinnamon spice that are carried to a long finish by a complementary line of natural acidity.

The Mangan vineyard, which is owned and managed by Rick Cullen, is dry farmed and maintained using a biodynamic approach to viticulture. Soils are old, granite and gravely sandy loam, overlaying lateric subsoils. Fruit was picked over three weeks at 10 - 13.8º Baumes, when it had reached the perfect level of freshness, richness and complexity.

All grapes were dry farmed, hand-harvested and sorted before crushing. 6% of the blend was aged in two year old oak barrels for nine months. The Semillon was fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness.
