Vinified from choice parcels of fruit, picked off a small block of Chardonnay vines on the Vasse Felix Karridale property, only slightly south of Margaret River. This unusual section of Chardonnay stands out for its unique structure and flavour profile, ideally suited to the Blanc de Blancs style. Only a tiny volume was made. Chardonnay grapes are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, the majority of parts are sent to oak for a course of rich barrel ferments. Upon completion, batches are assembled and filled to bottle for a secondary vinification in true Methode traditionelle. Two years of bottle ageing and remuage on yeast lees contact is followed by disgorgement and liqueur dosage.
 
Refined effervescence, golden hues. Lemon sorbet bouquet, lanolin, lavendar and mozzarella notes. A luscious, fresh entrance to the palate, bursting with voluminous yet refined creamy mousse. Delicate and pure with crunchy green apple characters and a squeeze of lemon before a lavendar brulée finish. The dry, chalky, mineral edge is balanced by subtle creamy textures and judicious measure of dosage liqueur.

The finest Cabernet Sauvignon available to Vasse Felix hails from the northern end of Margaret River, off vines planted to gravel loam soils within eight kilometres of the coast. Individual vineyard sections are fermented as separate parcels, many are left on skins to macerate for up to thirty days. Tannin influence is controlled through traditional oxidative handling, creating a deeply coloured wine with great structure and length. The Cabernet backbone of blackcurrant and herbal nuances with long, dry sinewy tannins is lifted to glorious heights by smaller portions of Merlot and Malbec. The finished wine is aged eighteen months in a selection of new and seasoned, exclusively French oak barriques.
 
Deep red with crimson hue. Rich, concentrated blackcurrant, violets, bay leaf and dried twigs with hints of mocha, menthol and graphite, all perfectly framed by subtle spicy, vanillin French oak. Enters the mouth rich and seductive, with a mixture of blackcurrant, bay leaf and chocolate dust, then bursts to life with an explosion of tangy, bright acidity. Finishes fragrant, over a lingering length of finely structured, dry tannins.
Vasse Felix Cane Cut Semillon 375ml
Margaret River
Available by the dozen
Vasse Felix produce the most exquisite Margaret River Semillon, wines of extraordinary freshness, lifted fruit intensity, elegance and finesse. Vasse Felix make a cane cut dessert style Semillon by slashing the shoots at the base, essentially detaching fruit from the vine. Bunches are then allowed to hang for several weeks, during which time the berries desiccate, concentrating the sugar, flavours and acid. The result is an attractive quince and tropical fruit flavoured wine offering amazing depth of flavour and vitality, seasoned by just a hint of spicy French oak.

Cane Cut Semillon is all about timing and precision, exercising care in the vineyard to create fruit which can ultimately translate into a wine of purity and elegance. Being an early ripening grape, Semillon finds the growing conditions in Margaret River idyllic. Vines will usually compensate for cooler conditions by reducing yield so that every chance is given to obtain optimum ripeness. Given the amount of shrivel in a cane cut grape, yields are precious and extraction rates are very low for this style of wine. Following harvest and the crush, juices are inoculated to select yeasts before vinification in a combination of fermenters, folowed by a judicious term of lees stirring in a mix of French oak barriques. Alcohol 11.0%
 
Medium straw hues. Intensely fragrant with barley sugar and spice, lovely citrus marmalade notes, gingernut and meringue are seasoned by toasty French oak notes of vanilla and spice. Preserved lemon, tangerine and grapefruit flavours burst onto the palate, a fresh tangy acidity perfectly balancing the rich luscious sweetness. A lovely viscous, silky, creamed honey mouthfeel provides medium bodied richness and texture, finely focused mineral acidity and long luscious finish.

1 - 12 of 16 Wines By Vasse Felix
Planted by Dr Tom Cullity in 1967, Vasse Felix was the first vineyard and winery to be established in the Margaret River region

Situated in the sub-region of Willyabrup, Vasse Felix is now owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family. Visitors to the winery 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 region. Margaret River enjoys perfect conditions for viticulture. It's Mediterranean climate features mild, wet winters and warm, dry summers - ideal for the growth of high quality fruit. By comparison with Bordeaux, Margaret River enjoys less rain during a longer, drier moderate growing and ripening period. In 1965 Dr John S Gladstones emphasised the region's suitability on his report "The Climate and Soils of Southern WA in relation to Vine Growing". Two years later Dr Tom Cullity planted his Vasse Felix vines.

Vasse Felix

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 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 estate's low yielding, dry grown vines are planted on some of the world’s oldest soils. The sites enjoy long, warm growing seasons and cooling summer breezes from the nearby Indian and Southern Oceans. This moderating effect is responsible for creating wines of exceptional concentration and intensity whilst retaining elegance and finesse – these cooling summer breezes from two oceans are unique to the southwest corner of Western Australia.

The vineyards are mostly sited on gravel loam and loam soils. Principal red varieties planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot while Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc comprise the white varieties. Parcels of ultra premium fruit are fermented separately in small, static fermenters to retain the unique character of individual vineyards sites before being basket pressed and sent to the finest of French oak barriques.

The continuing worldwide demand for premium wines created the need for a new state-of-the-art winery at Vasse Felix. To meet the demands, the philosophy has always been that wines should be unique, distinctive and expressive of their surroundings. Though production levels have increased, the completion of the new Barrel Hall has provided the winemaking team with further control to maintain the quality of the wines. An impressive expanse, the Barrel Hall holds up to 5000 barriques in conditions that ensure efficient barrel fermentation and a controlled environment. Making use of the best equipment available, utilising the best production processes and an unwavering attitude to quality control, has made Vasse Felix winery one of the best in Western Australia.
