Cullen Wines Red Moon Mangan Vineyard 2017

This Cullen wine takes its name from the 'Red Moon' which occurs during a total lunar eclipse when the light filtering through the Earth’s atmosphere dapples the moon in red light. This penumbral lunar eclipse occurred on 11th February 2017 during harvest. The grapes for the wine are grown on a single vineyard (Mangan) in the Wilyabrup subregion of the Margaret River. The soils are old, granite and gravely sandy loam, overlaying lateric subsoils. Malbec (57%), Petit Verdot (37%) and Merlot (6%) are three grape varieties that are particularly well suited to growing in this area. In the 'Red Moon' wine, the Malbec provides the fruit power and colour, the Petit Verdot the length and texture and the Merlot the structure. This certified biodynamic wine has a very attractive blend of plummy, cherry and spice flavours on the palate. A juicy and pure, fruit-driven wine.
