The Cullen Wines Vanya contains 100% cabernet sauvignon and is hand harvested under the full Moon on a fruit day, and Holi Day – the Hindu festival of colour.
The fruit was sorted, destemmed, and fermented on skins for 10 days, then pressed into new barriques for 6 months. This wine is grown on certified biodynamic, carbon positive soils, and is a perfect expression of the purity of cabernet sauvignon.
Two-thirds whole berries/one-third crushed into 300l terracotta amphorae for wild fermentation, 10 weeks on skins before pressed to French oak (66% new) for 5 months. This is a truly beautiful and graceful cabernet. Its purity of varietal fruit expression, its perfect fruit/oak/tannin balance and its length are exceptional.
