Established in 1967 by Dr Tom Cullity, Vasse Felix is Margaret River’s founding wine estate and has lead Margaret River in quality since the beginning. They have consistently raised the bar for their region with outstanding, long-lived Cabernet Sauvignon and complex, multifaceted Chardonnay.
Their flagship wine of the estate, Heytesbury Cabernet is sourced from the original 1967 plantings and made from a meticulous selection of the most outstanding barrels of a vintage. Their Cabernets are always blended with Malbec to enhance the Cabernet profile and bring out the unique Vasse Felix savoury style. It is balanced, elegant and complex, with very limited quantity produced.
“I truly believe the Margaret River could be one of the greatest in the world… I wouldn’t want to be making wine anywhere else!” said Virginia Willcock, the Chief Winemaker who is recognized amongst the most awarded female winemakers in Australia and have been named Gourmet Traveller WINE’s Winemaker of the Year in 2012.
