Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
Deep garnet-purple in color and showing a slightly reticent nose of ripe plums, blackcurrants and blackberries with touches of cedar, toast, cinnamon stick, bay leaf and pencil lead, the medium-bodied 2012 Diana Madeline displays outstanding intensity and great elegance on the palate. It has a lovely backbone of firm, fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity to carry the flavors through a finishing with great persistence. Drink it now to 2025+.
Still very elemental, this has all the hallmarks of one of the great Cullen Diana Madeline wines - abundantly ripe red, blue and purple fruits on the nose, fine chocolate dust, fresh earth and a sheen of fragrant cabernet perfume too. The palate is defined by the right mix of helix-like tannins and juicy, fleshy fruit - really superb balance here, great drive and depth, sapid and precise and filled with lively potential. Drink in 2024.
