Langton's Exceptional Classification. Diana Madeline is one of Australia's great icon wines, crafted from fruit grown to one of Margaret River's earliest sites. The vines, planted in 1971, provide a scant two tons per acre, yielding grapes of amazing concentration. Cullen have returned to the old world practice of basket pressing. To their delight, they have found that this leads to the extraction of only the finest tannins. A stately construct in statuesque Bordeaux styling, deeply coloured, the extraordinary depth of flavour reflects an outstanding quality of fruit.
In accordance with biodynamic principles, all fruit is hand harvested from vines up to forty years of age. A patented MistralĀ® apparatus removes the leaf material and infertile berries from the vineyard, providing cleaner bunches. A luxurious cepage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot, the grapes are carefully sorted before fermentation to indigenous yeasts and malolactic bacteria. No acid or cultured yeasts are added, achieving a wine with a sense of place through a completely natural process. Components are separately vinified before being treated to nineteen months maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques.
TASTING NOTES
Delicate crimson, garnet ruby hue. Plum, mulberry and blackcurrant aromas cascade out of the glass accompanied by elevated notes of violet and rose. Savoury ironstone and tobacco complete the classic aroma profile of Diana Madeline. Fine grained tannins with uplifting and sustained fruit notes. Red fruit and plum flavours connect with the ironstone minerality, providing backbone and structure. Medium bodied, elegant, the depth and length are profound, proverbial fist in a velvet glove.

More About Cullen Wines
The Cullen winemaking approach is that they will do whatever it takes to make outstanding wines
In the early 1960's detailed climatic studies of various regions in Southwestern Australia revealed that during the winegrowing season, Margaret River's climate was similar to that of Bordeaux, particularly Pomerol. The conclusion that Margaret River was ideal for viticulture was first tested in Wilyabrup in 1966, when Diana and Kevin Cullen planted a trial acre of vines. The encouraging results led to the couple planting 18 acres of vines on their sheep and cattle farm in 1971. Cullen»
