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.

  • Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2010


    AUD$36. The fruit for this wine come off vineyards in the northern end of the Margaret River region, to within 8km of the coastline so it is strongly influenced by the offshore winds. The soil composition is mostly gravel loam. Individual parcels of fruit were fermented on skinds for up to 30 days. Clear, intense purple ruby colour. An attractiv... Read More

    AUD$22. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 6% Malbec.

The Cabernet fruit underwent a 5-day warm maceration period to maximise tannin and colour extraction. The Merlot fruit underwent cold ma... Read More

  • Vasse Felix Chardonnay Margaret River 2012


    AUD$22. Fruit was harvested and fermented as individual parcels with wild yeasts. Pressed juice was matured in French oak barrels for 9 months. Clear pale yellow with a green tinge. Youthful aromas of white peach, apple, lemon and grapefruit, slight note of struck match and clove. It doesnt have that weighty creamy impression, so Id guess minima... Read More

  • Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2009


    AUD$30. Intense dark ruby color. Youthful aromas that are slightly restrained, needs a bit of work and swirling to unveil more aromas, notes of blackcurrants, blackberries, warm scrub bush, and hint of blackpepper. A full-bodied wine, robust tannin structure with high acidity. Flavours of blackberry with cedar and spicy seasonings, and pepper on... Read More

  • Vasse Felix Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia 2010


    Very pale yellow straw colour. Fermented with wild yeats and maturedfor 9 months in French oak barrels. Youthful spritzy aromas of white peach, honey melon and hint of buttered cashews. A dry, med+ bodied wine with plenty of acidity but that is partially hidden by the rounded feel on the palate. 12.5% alc. Flavours of white peach, squeeze of lem... Read More

  • Vasse Felix Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Margaret River Classic Dry Red 2006


    Not the best of vintages in Western Australia, but the nose has a wonderfully evocative pencil lead and Christmas spice drifting across a core of plum and tart, wild cherry. The entry is almost kirsch-like; blackberry and currant notes remind me of Mother's preserves. Good Cabernet Sauvignon character but lacking the power of many modern, New W... Read More
