Ancient soils and cooling sea breezes from the Southern and Indian Oceans provide the Margaret River wine region with ideal viticultural conditions to craft wines of exceptional concentration and intensity whilst retaining elegance and finesse. Planted by Dr Tom Cullity in 1967, Vasse Felix was the first vineyard and winery to be established in the Margaret River region and is owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family. Situated in the sub-region of Willyabrup, visitors to Vasse Felix are welcomed by a unique underground cellar, a spectacular restaurant overlooking the original 1967 plantings and an exquisite art gallery, making Vasse Felix one of the great drawcards of the Margaret River Wine Region. The name ‘Vasse Felix’ was inspired by an early event in the district. Thomas Vasse was a French seaman who disappeared after his longboat overturned near the site of Busselton whilst exploring the treacherous South West Coastline of Western Australia. (An expedition of Captain Hamelin’s Naturaliste and Captain Baudin’s Geographe) Felix was Hamelin’s middle name, and ironically, is the Latin word for lucky. The Vasse Felix logo is a Peregrine Falcon. When Dr Tom Cullity’s first vines began to bear fruit, native birds or ‘silvereyes’ as they are commonly known, had a keen appetite for the sweet berries, so Dr Cullity trained a falcon to deter the pests. Although much time and effort went into this exercise, upon the falcon’s first free flight it soared into the sky and was never seen again. The Vasse Felix logo endures to this day. The Vasse Felix wines are crafted by Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock, whose understanding and excitement for the region complement the Vasse Felix belief that wines should be unique, distinctive and expressive of their surroundings. The portfolio of Vasse Felix wines represents a definitive expression of variety and sense of place. Vasse Felix continues to be one of the most highly reviewed and visited wineries in Australia, treating wine and food lovers from around the globe with an exquisite restaurant, a welcoming cellar door and art gallery and an unforgettable Margaret River experience.

72% cabernet, 15% malbec, 13% petit verdot. Opaque purple with a slim magenta rim. Mildly intense fresh herbs announce the bouquet and bring ones thoughts straight to youthful Bordeaux, as hints of currants are present but not quite obvious at this ... Chuck Hayward. A Proprietary Blend wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2007 Vasse Felix Heytesbury 750ml

In der Nase intensiv und ein Mix von Schokolade, Zigarrenschachtel und Leder. Aromen nach Blaubeeren und Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. Ein beeindruckender Wein, intensiv, konzentriert, harmonisch und mit unvergesslichem Abgang

Der Wein wirkt im Gaumen weich und zeigt grosszügige Aromen von Cassis und Beerenobst. Eine attraktive, blumige Nase. Der Gaumen folgt mit wohligen, vollen Fruchtaromen und Minzenoten.
