Four Vasse Felix Wines in 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards
We were thrilled to have four Vasse Felix wines recognised amongst the best in the world at the 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards, announced last week.⠀
Selected from over 16,000 wines from 56 countries, both Icon wines, the 2018 Hetesbury Chardonnay and 2016 TOM CULLITY were awarded a Gold medal, while our Vasse Felix Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon each received a Silver medal.
Now in its 17th year, the Decanter World Wine Awards are judged by 118 expert wine judges, including 37 Masters of Wine and nine Master Sommeliers over a mammoth 28 days of tasting. Explore the full awards here.
