Tasting notes


Made by Vanya Cullen, and named after her mother, this is the finest Bordeaux blend we've ever tasted from Australia. Bursting with fruit intensity without a hint of over-ripeness, with superbly harmonious oak and almost ready to drink, such is its balance and class. Drink 2005-20.


Named in memory of Di Cullen, this is one of the best ever vintages of an Australian great. It's deep in colour, aroma and palate, with ripe blackberry Cabernet fruit and harmonised oak. It is dense and powerful without sacrificing elegance or subtlety. Drink 2006-2025
