Excitement is building for the new 2017 TOM CULLITY as the first of the critic reviews are released.
Ray Jordan who reviewed the new release recently said; "Vasse Felix delivers a masterclass in understated elegance."
"..it [2017 TOM CULLITY] delivers with an understatement and tightness that takes a little time to get your head around."
While Huon Hooke of the Real Review named the 2017 release "the best Tom Cullity to date."
Most recently, the new release was tasted alongside two previous vintages by Langton’s Auction Specialist Michael Anderson and Master of Wine Ned Goodwin who pronounced the 2017 TOM CULLITY "quintessential Margaret River." You can catch their virtual tasting here.
Explore the full reviews below. Offically available May 1, we'll be sharing more details on this restrained and ethereal vintage soon, including a very special TOM CULLITY takeover at the Estate. In the meantime, explore the story of the TOM CULLITY here.
Huon Hooke, The Real Review
"Deep red/purple colour with a very fresh, nuanced, aromatic bouquet loaded with blue and red fruits, cedar and high-toned flowers, violets to the fore. A totally gorgeous bouquet, very fresh and primary but also complex and detailed. Very fine tannins; extremely long carry. A supremely elegant, sublime wine that finishes right out with impressive extension. Clearly, the best Tom Cullity to date."
Ray Jordan, The West Australian
"This is an 82 per cent cabernet-dominant blend, making it the highest percentage of cabernet of any of the release to date. Immediately strikes as the most restrained, elegant and medium bodied of any of the vintages. A deal of tannin astringency is evident on the palate, but it sits snuggly within. Fine, silky tannins and what appears to be about an average amount of new French oak consistent with the rest of the wines, with 2016 being an exception. To me, this is a wine you will drink earlier before the others are ready, but it is still a very good wine."
