MALBEC, PETIT VERDOT
A Red Moon occurs during a total lunar eclipse when the light filtering through the Earth’s atmosphere dapples the moon in red light. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurred on the 11th of February 2017 during harvest. Fruit from the Mangan Vineyard was hand-harvested, fermented naturally and basket pressed to French oak.
Cullen Wines have been very successful in meeting their aim of producing a wine which, while fruit-driven, is of such high quality that it will develop for several years under good cellaring conditions.This wine was made from a carefully selected blend of Malbec and Petit Verdot grown on the Mangan Vineyard, which has been shown to be ideally suited to nurturing these grape varieties.
91 Points, Decanter
First violet and white pepper-edged blackberry, then sappier apple notes, and finally on opening up, sweeter blueberry fruit. Malbec accounts for the deep hue and this wine’s signature juicy vitality. Petit Verdot’s small berries add light grip to otherwise discreet, gravelly tannins. Only 57% of the wine is aged in seasoned French oak, accentuating the fruit purity.
