The Cullen Kevin John Chardonnay 2021 features aromas of minerally, white flower, mandarin, curry leaf and nutmeg. On the palate, there is concentrated citrus; lemon, lime, and orange. A long palate which right now is tightly wound, some funk and matchstick taking this wine to a beautiful complex chardonnay heaven, poised now to open its song to the world and tell its story to all who partake in the drinking.
The 2021 Kevin John is another landmark in the journey of finding the holy grail of great chardonnay with biodynamics, digging deeper to find wines of the land. Harvested across 3 weeks including fruit and flower days and fermented naturally in biodynamic barrels, concrete eggs and amphorae. This wine matured in 35% new puncheons for 8 months before bottling without fining or filtration.
