Vasse Felix, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Margaret River, Australia 2013

Vasse Felix has been a pioneering force in the Margaret River region since the 1960s. Its Sauvignon Semillon gives you a truly enjoyable glass of wine. It’s quite forward and zippy, with citrus and apple notes countered by more herbaceous touches and an attractive, textured feel.

Vasse Felix was founded by pioneer Dr Thomas Cullity in 1967 and is now owned by Paul Holmes à Court. It is situated in Margaret River, Australia. It is the founding wine estate of Margaret River.

Vasse Felix sits in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, with vineyards also located to the north of the region in Carbunup, and to the south, in Karridale, benefit from a micro-climate and natural irrigation. The area has about three main types of soil, a clay based soil, a gravel based type of soil but also a sandy soil. Together, these conditions are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
