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.
Price: £13.99 Waitrose
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.
