A selection of the most unique and striking vineyard sections, recognised for its innovative winemaking and distinguishing 'Heytesbury' character.
Our most unique small sections within our vineyards where clone, aspect and soil interplay in such a way that sets these parcels apart from the rest. Each batch was very gently pressed and the juice then transferred directly to barriques with the inclusion of all solids to achieve more of the unique vineyard character. Each batch was fermented wild with no yeast addition and was stirred throughout the nine months of maturation, allowing the yeast lees to impart further complexity, texture and palate weight to the wine. With bright, high acidity in 2016, natural malolactic fermentation was encouraged and completed.
“The only aim was to make the best possible wine.”
Founder Dr Tom Cullity.
Almost half a century since the first vines were planted, this simple aim remains the core ethos of Margaret River’s founding winery Vasse Felix and its owners, the Holmes à Court Family.
From an eight acre vineyard and humble winemaking facility in 1967, Vasse Felix has developed to include three premium vineyards and a state-of-the-art winery, where every process is controlled from vine to bottle.
Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon (and Cabernet blends), Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blends are enjoyed in over 25 countries around the world.
Vasse Felix is one of Margaret River’s most welcoming estates with its contemporary cellar door, nationally-acclaimed restaurant and art gallery. Within the original underground cellar lives an archive of Vasse Felix and Margaret River wine history.
