Cullen Red Moon Mangan Vineyard 2020
Region: Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: 48% Malbec 40% Petit Verdot 12% Merlot
Deep mulberry in colour with purple hues. On the nose, there are plum, and blackberry aromas that are accompanied by lifted floral notes of violet and rose. The palate has a very attractive blend of juicy dark cherry, blueberry and hints of spice. Well-balanced acidity is backed by fine-grained tannins and a touch of chocolate on the long and savoury finish.
This wine takes its name from the 'Red Moon' that occurs during a total lunar eclipse when the light filtering through the Earth’s atmosphere dapples the moon in red light. The grapes are grown on a single vineyard in the Wilyabrup sub-region, located 20 kilometres north of the Margaret River township. The soils are old, granite and gravely sandy loam, overlaying lateritic subsoils.
