Cullen Cullen Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2014
71% Sauvignon Blanc and 29% Semillon from the Cullen Vineyard. 87% of the wine spends five months in French oak of which 62% is new. The nose is a delightful combination of fresh cut grass, spicy and vanillin oak aromas supported by tropical notes. The palate shows deep, rich and vibrant fruit lifted by mineral flavours. Very complex already with lovely Chilean guava notes and toasty characteristics.

James Halliday – A 71/29% blend, wild yeast-fermented, with no acid additions; 87% of the wine was matured for 5 months in French barriques (62% new). Follows in a long and proud tradition of exceptionally complex wines that rely on gentle persuasion, not brute force or, if you prefer, seduction rather than rape. The flavours are so attractive and mouthfilling now, it is easy to forget the wine will mature with grace for well over a decade.
In a mixed or straight case: $33.24
