Exceptional Langtons Classification. This is one of the great years for Diana Madeline. The outstanding quality reflects a combination of excellent seasonal conditions that existed for all red grape varieties during the lead up to vintage 2007 and the benefits of employing the most exacting biodynamic practices. The requisite Medoc cepage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, for a wine of imposing stature, eminence and grace.
Grapes for Diana Madeline are grown to the most fastidious biodynamic farming principles, crucial for optimising quality of fruit and intensity of flavour while infusing the wine with velvety structure and ultra high quality tannins. The vines were originally planted to granitic soils in the central Willyabrup subregionb by Di Cullen in 1971, the meagre yields of two tons per acre sublimate into harvests of the most concentrated fruit. Grapes are picked at baumes ranging from 12˚ to 13.8˚, gently handled and sorted with great care. Varietal components are inoculated to natural yeasts and separately vinified. The finished wine was matured fourteen months in a selection of the highest quality French oak barriques.
TASTING NOTES
Very concentrated deep red colour. Already very complex, clean and rich blackcurrant aromas with a touch of blackberry and vanillin oak. The complex amalgam of liquorice, fennel and multi fruit flavours, including plums and mulberry, red currants and blueberry, are backed by just the right amount of clean oak. Long and persistent. The extraordinary depth of flavour reflects the outstanding quality of vintage 2007. Complete, elegant and refined, a wine of exceptional length, an outstanding Cabernet.

About Cullen Winery
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»
