    A sparkling rosé is from the 2017 harvest and made of a blend of grapes grown on one of the best vineayrds in the world, with some of the best farming practices in the world, by one of the best winemakers in the world. Some of the fruit was picked on a full moon and the wine is a ‘rosé’ hence the name Rose Moon fitting Cullen's biodynamic philosophy. It is a “petillant naturel” based on the methode ancestrale way of creating a sparkling wine (the wine is bottled before the first fermentation is finished - trapping the bubbles/gasses created during fermentaion of the grapes sugars in to alcohol).
    A bright, quirky and utterly drinkable sparkling wine full of flavour. Find guava, strawberry, cherry undertones to small and taste the moreish mid palate sweetness . Clean and wonderfully refreshing finish. This or mass produced, insustrially farmed Champagne with a brand name?

    Region

    If you haven't visited, you must. A rustic, deliciously salty, native eucalypt forest framed version of Australian coastal paradise. Whatever is farmed and harvested here, both from land or sea, is inevitably healthy, fresh and richly flavoured - idiosyncratic to this corner of Australia. Merely 3 hours drive south of Western Australia's capital Perth, the Margaret River wine region is a naturally beautiful area bordered by the Indian ocean which is a major geographic influence - a natural gem for keeping the grapes balanced and not over-ripe. This region produces some of the most profound & exciting wines in the world - genuinely world class. Producers here are farming and crafting wines in all sorts of styles worthy of discovering - traditional and age worthy to avant-garde and tumbler bound. Cabernet Sauvignon here is exceptional. Look to producers such as Cullen, Pierro, Si Vintners, (some new trendy, some the highest quality etc..). Local Knowledge: Drink at Settlers Tavern - one of the most exceptional wine list in the country.

    It’s a blend of all the different red grape varieties, though you could say it is dominated by merlot. The 2014 was the first version. Pet nats are increasingly a thing good to get a handle on them as a style, and see this, at the apex of price point domestically. Hazy pink. Rose petal, Turkish delight, faint beetroot and a swish of sour cherry. Sweet fruited to taste, light in fizz but vigorous enough to give good tickle in the palate. Delicious is a clear message. Really lovely drinking here with good grapiness, freshness and sense of fun.
