2009 Cullen "Mangan" Bordeaux Blend Margaret River

SKU #1109546 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (made from 63% malbec, 27% petit verdot and 10% merlot): Bright ruby. Ripe, primary aromas of red berry preserves and rose. Sweet and silky in texture, with a tangy mineral bite and attractive sweetness to its flavors of raspberry, cherry and spicecake. Finishes long, with silky tannins and an echo of sweet red fruit.  (7/ 2011)

91 points Wine Spectator

 This stone-accented, open-textured mouthful is filled with red fruits, riding on a bracing structure that invites sip after sip. Offers depth and a distinctive profile. Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2015.  (12/ 2011)

K&L Notes

Biodynamically produced. From Jancis Robinson: "Bright crimson, very lively and peppery on the nose. Wags its tail! Lively and only very lightly like a peppermint toffee, but overall very bright with a dry, slightly crisp finish." 10/2011

Australia

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great Region are in the southeastern area of the continent, with the Barossa Valley, Claire Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia, the Yarra Yarra Velley and Pyrenees in Victoria and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling from the land Down Under. While many equate Aussie wines with "value", there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
