Recommended by Nigella Lawson
“A blend of semillon and sauvignon blanc, fermented on skins, this has a rich array of ripe-peach, grilled-almond, baked-apple and orange-zest aromas. The palate is robustly textured and has a very rich and round textural feel with poached stone-fruit flavors. Orange-peel finish. Complex. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.” – James Suckling
“A blend of 59% Semillon and 41% Sauvignon Blanc made on skins in amphorae (18 days), the 2018 Amber then went into second-fill oak for two months. Scents of honey, fig, melon and orange zest emerge from the glass, while the medium-bodied palate is plump and fleshy, finishing with a gentle dusting of tannins.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Before I leave Australia, have to give a shout out to this utterly fabulous wine from Cullen Wines…” – Nigella Lawson
Tasting Note: Bouquet: Very complex already with orange bitters, almonds and a hint of honeysuckle. Food: Fantastic as an aperitif or with Manchego cheese and a touch of Cullen Honey. Palate: This wine has a textural and concentrated palate with great length and persistence. Delightful notes of orange, toffee and gentle saltiness on the finish. It is a tannic wine.
