Why do we love this wine?

The competition is fierce to produce Australia’s best chardonnay. There are several names that consistently circle around the top 20, but Cullen’s Kevin John Chardonnay always ends up at the pointy end of the competition. And here’s why. Fastidious fruit selection in the vineyard is followed by fermentation with wild yeast  in barriques, amphorae and ceramic egg-shaped vessels. The wine goes through natural malolactic fermentation before maturation for five months in French oak (30% new).

Clearly the team aren’t over-reaching with excessive oak - happy to find that middle ground to let the pure fruit characters shine with supportive oak for balance. And that’s one thing you’ll keep seeing - fruit purity and balance. The nose is gorgeous. Lemon tart, citrus blossom, pastry and brioche is underpinned with slatey minerality and gentle oak influence. It’s oh-so good. The palate takes it a step further with fine focus, with pure peach and lemon pith leading to broader brioche and sourdough. And at its peak, trailing minerality, spicy oak and lazer-like acidity continue the ride. The texture is rich without falling over. This is one fine package.

Part of our Women in Wine collection

This wine is part of our Women in Wine collection. We are committed to ALWAYS having wines available that are made by women. We already support so many women in the industry but we want to make this much more transparent and visible for our mofos. We want to make a real and lasting impact in an industry that is sadly still dominated by men. And this is the first step. Here’s to our Women in Wine!
