US Based Wine & Spirits Magazine Names Vasse Felix A Top 100 Winery of 2019
Vasse Felix has once again been named one of USA Magazine Wine & Spirits’ ‘Top 100 Wineries.’
The list includes fellow Margaret River winery, Leeuwin Estate and South Australia’s Penfolds.
Each year, the magazine creates this list based on wineries who have the most consistent performance and highest scores throughout the year. Their panel and critics blind taste more than 11,000 wines and present only the most distinctive selections to their readers.
In celebration of this honour, Vasse Felix will be participating in the Wine & Spirits 16th Annual Top 100 Tasting events being held in San Francisco in October, then New York City on 14 January, 2020.
2015 TOM CULLITY
"Tom Cullity planted the first vines at Vasse Felix in 1967, starting with cabernet sauvignon and malbec at his eight-acre parcel near Caves Road in Wilyabrup. Virginia Willcock and her team now tend to the descendants of those vines, producing this top selection under Cullity’s name. It’s a complex and elegant Margaret River classic, refreshing for all its supple richness. There’s a note of anise to the spicy scent, a cool sense of tilled earth in the dark tannins. Associate Editor Rachel Del Rocco Terrazas commented on how long the flavors last: ‘All the freshness and tannins work together and leave my mouth super happy.'" 94 points, Wine & Spirits
