Cullen 'Kevin John' Chardonnay 2017
2016 Cullen Kevin John Offer
Once again, one of Australia’s great white wines gets the jump on the release of its flagship sister wine, Diana Madeline. Vanya Cullen’s 2016 'Kevin John' Chardonnay has long proven its pedigree. The vines turned 40 last year, and the 2015 release marked the 10-year milestone since the wine was renamed in honour of Vanya’s father. An unbroken seam of outstanding releases has confirmed its place among the Chardonnay aristocracy – and indeed the wine itself announces its class as soon as you look at it. “Wastes no time in asserting its blue blood ancestry,” is how James Halliday put it when writing up the ’15.
But what good is reverence without joy? Vanya’s got that covered. “A thing of sheer beauty, it left me completely transfixed,” said Tyson Stelzer of the previous release, while Gary Walsh of The Wine Front proclaimed: “It’s a beautiful thing. Power with grace.” Walsh’s cohort Campbell Mattinson was first out of the gate with a review of this new-release 2016, and we’ll let his words speak for themselves.
So it is with pleasure that we present the fruit – the glowing, pristine, biodynamic fruit – of the Cullen Vineyard and its assiduously devoted custodian.
