Good rain during growing season with no rain at all during January, February and to the end of harvest in March. Low yields and extraordinary compositions with low ph and good acids and flavours just building and building as the grapes continued to ripen. The result is wines across the board which are big in flavour and style. A vintage with long lasting wines of larger than life character.
Cullen Mangan Vineyard Semillon
Although the weather leading up to and including vintage was warm, the fruit produced by all varieties in the vineyards of Cullen Wines in 2014 was exceptional. We had no rain in January, February and until the end of harvest in March. These low yields, fantastic PH and great acids levels translated in wines of great flavour and style. The fruit was picked at 13° Baumé and with a high natural acidity. The wine was fermented naturally and had no barrel ageing.
