Details

CULLEN: One of the pioneers of Margaret River, and has always produced long-lived wines of highly individual style from the mature estate vineyards. Winemaking is in the hands of Vanya Cullen, daughter of the founders; she is possessed of an extraordinarily good palate. It is impossible to single out any particular wine from the top echelon; all are superb. JAMES HALLIDAY

MT MARY: Superbly refined, elegant and intense Cabernets and usually outstanding and long-lived Pinot Noirs fully justify Mount Mary’s exalted reputation. The Triolet blend is very good; more recent vintages of Chardonnay are even better. Founder and long-term winemaker, the late Dr John Middleton, was one of the great, and truly original, figures in the Australian wine industry. The determination of the family to continue the business is simply wonderful. Grandson Sam is protecting the Mount Mary legacy, and doing so with open-minded charm, not afraid to consider ways to make great wines even greater. JAMES HALLIDAY

These two wineries need no introduction to collectors of Australian wine. However it may seem a little strange to be pairing up a Margaret River and Yarra Valley estate for a lunch, but not when you think about the history and evolution of these two super stars. Both producers are pioneers of their respective regions and have built their reputation of fine, long lived Cabernet, top flight Chardonnay and a Sem Sauv Blanc Blend.
I can’t honestly think of a more exciting pair of Aussie winemakers or a lunch I would rather attend than this. What better way to celebrate Aussie Wine Month than drinking Cullen and Mt Mary over lunch. ROSCOE
