2001 Heytesbury

The brief given when making the Heytesbury, in the words of Vasse Felix and Margaret River's founding vigneron, Dr Tom Cullity - "to make the best possible wine." The wine is a tribute to the hard work and foresight gained from making wine in the Margaret River Region for 35 years at Vasse Felix. This wine is made from the fruit of unirrigated vines planted 35 years ago. The 2001 vintage in Margaret River was an early one and very intense, with grapes ripening quickly across all varieties. The wine is fermented and matured in the highest selection French oak barriques and matured for 18 months. The aim of the style is to respect the powerful fruit flavours and create a wine of great finesse, elegance and balance.
