Featured White Wine for February – 2017 Cullen Mangan Vineyard Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon
Published on February 2, 2022
A perfect winter white. The classic white grape blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon is synonymous with the Bordeaux region of France. The grapes work so well together because Sémillon brings body and rounds out Sauvignon Blanc’s tart acidity and herbal notes. The featured white wine for Winecroft members for February is not from Bordeaux but from Margaret River in western Australia and has wonderful new-world ripeness of fruit. It is complex and richly textured, full of tropical pineapple, guava, and freshly cut grass aromas, from the Cullens’ biodynamically farmed Mangan Vineyard in Wilyabrup, Margaret River. On the nose complex aromas of gooseberries and citrus fruit combine with freshly cut grass. The palate has intense citrus fruit notes of lemon and lime rounded out by honeydew melon. These pure fruit flavours are sustained on a long savoury finish.
This wine has recently been featured on the winelist of Restaurant Coworth Park.

Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.
The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:
Light: You’re normally sensitive to things in general, such as changes in temperatures and loud noises. You are quite choosy with your wine tastes and have a preference for clean, delicate wines
Medium-bodied: You enjoy a wide variety of tastes, quite flexible with your choice of wines and enjoy delicate whites to full flavoured reds
Full-bodied: In life, you tend to be straightforward and decisive You enjoy intense flavours. A big and bold red wine would typically be your choice on the winelist.
Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
