Vasse Felix Featured in Cellar Press 2020 Best of Awards
As we navigate this intense time, in the middle of Vintage in the Winery, it's good to stop and celebrate the wins. And we're thrilled with the recent news that Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock has been named 'Winemaker of the Year' in Vintage Cellars 2020 Best of Awards.⠀
"For a winery to be able to maintain a consistent level of quality across its range - from the midweek drops through to the ultra-premium labels - seems somehow implausible, almost a pipedream of sorts. But that's not the case for Margaret River's Vasse Felix, headed up by the renowned Virginia Willcock, one of Australian wine's leading lights and one of our most admired winemakers."⠀
A selection of wines from the Vasse Felix wine collection also featured in the Best of Line-up, including the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon which was awarded 'Best of Premium Red Wine.'
Winner - Best Of Premium Red Wine
Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon
"Our panel of experts found this wine intense yet elegantly structured, and quite extraordinary for its colour, unique aromatic structure, freshness of flavours, finely sculpted tannins and overall harmony. Notes of blackcurrant and red cherry intertwine with cedar and lavender. A vibrant palate displays raspberry, blackcurrant, wood spice and sweet tobacco leaf, leading into a rich volume of fine, extending tannins."
No. 6 Finalist - Best of Premium White
Vasse Felix Chardonnay
"A perfume of white peach and ocean rocks; a palate that shows the same peach with lemon pith and cashews; a mouth-wateringly fresh acid finish."
No. 2 Finalist - Best of Value Red
"Shiraz and cabernet sauvignon dominate this lean, dry blend showing plum, spice rack and old Jamaican chocolate. Nicely structured, with plenty of earthy tannins."
No. 4 Finalist - Best of Value White
Classic Dry White
"Enjoy passionfruit and citrus peel aromas. This blend combines semillon's elegant floral and citrus aromas with tropical-influenced sauvignon blanc."
