The 2016 season delivered another outstanding vintage: the fruit produced by all varieties in the vineyards of Cullen Wines was exceptional.
Very low yields (below 2 tonnes/hectare) and ideal ripening conditions resulted in wines of great texture and finesse.
These low yields, fantastic PH and great acids levels translated in wines of tremendous depth. The Chardonnay grapes were hand harvested on a fruit day from 40 year old vines.
They were then whole bunch pressed and fermented with wild yeast in barrel and a concrete egg.
It underwent natural fermentation prior to receiving 10 months of oak maturation and was bottled directly from barrel with no fining and no filtration.
