Cullen Diana Madeline 2020 (3 x 750ml)

"Has the usual estate blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and malbec (92/4/3/1%), the grapes hand picked between early February and early March, the components matured in French oak (50% new) for 13 months. The perfumed bouquet has already soaked up the new oak, the purity of the fruit in a cassis-redcurrant-blueberry spectrum. The small berries of a quasi-drought summer might have imposed awkward tannins, but the medium-bodied palate is so perfectly balanced it has a drinking span of 30 years and counting."
98 points, James Halliday

"Great detail in that the wine comes from nine picks across fruit and flower days of the biodynamic calendar, spread across the month-ish lunar cycle.  The Cullen way.

Another beautiful, soulful release, this one is a bit darker, a bit bolder, a mesh of tannins over train tracks and tension, but a wine of significant pedigree and wow factor nonetheless.  Dark chocolate and graphite aromas with salted plum, black olive, bay leaf and oyster shell.  Flavours ripple with authority in the weave of tannin, dark choc again, panforte perhaps more apt, dark cherry, saline minerality; more bayleaf and cinnamon spice.  Succulent in the finish, mouth-coating and very fresh.  Compelling stuff."
