To mark Vasse Felix from Western Australia being named Wine Enthusiast's 'New World Winery of the Year' we Repeat our fabulous deal of early 2017 with these stunning new wines.

Vasse Mix
Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet Merlot 2015
5 Stars 94 Pts James Halliday Wine Companion 2018
Silver New Zealand International Wine Show 2017
"It has all the hallmarks of the warmer part of Margaret River, flavour building relatively early and sustained throughout the length of the palate. Juicy cassis in the cornerstone, but there are notes of dried herbs, black olive and oak adding complexity and length. ..Drink to 2029."

Vasse Straight
Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
95 points Huon Hooke
93 points Wine of the Week Toni Paterson MW
"Deep red/purple colour with a very attractive, clean and pure, fruit-driven aroma of cedar, tobacco, cassis and violets. It's medium to full-bodied and intense, with gentle tannins which are not too pervasive, and an overall impression of superb balance. The aftertaste is elegant and balanced and more-ish. A ripping cabernet." Huon Hooke
"An eminently satisfying, engaging wine with great depth, fruit purity and fragrance. Dark cherry flavours plus a hint of tamarillo. There is an endearing coolness to the wine, coupled with restrained power. Beautifully fine tannins. Fabulous value." Toni Paterson MW

91 Points Gary Walsh (winefront.com)
93 Points Huon Hooke (huonhooke.com). He said...
"Very deep dark red/ruby colour, rich ripe black fruit aromas, with subtle, deftly handled oak. The wine is full bodied and ample, with abundant tannin in good balance; long firm finish, with a minerally quality which lingers."
"This Heathcote beauty finds the sweet spot, combining generous dark fruits with savoury excellence. Worth every cent of the $25 price tag." John Lehman

"Vasse Felix celebrated their 50th anniversary this year by releasing a sensational new 2013 cabernet malbec petit verdot blend made from the original vines and called Tom Cullity, after the vineyard's founder, fittingly priced at A$160 a bottle. It makes the standard estate cabernet look like a snip at a mere A$45: this is a stunning, fragrant, supremely age-worthy red wine with essence of mulberry fruit framed by bright, lively tannins and a long, deep, botanical finish." Max Allen
"Cabernet, like chardonnay has been a particular focus for Vasse Felix. This is a special wine from a special vintage. Elegance and refinement personified. Leafy floral notes on the nose. But it is the palate that really sings. It's relatively tight with a core of fine oak and firmish silky tannins, but there is sweet fleshy fruit held with focus that extends effortlessly to the finish." Ray Jordan
"This is so floral and fragrant with currant and blackberry character. Full to medium body, linear and edgy with a energy running through it. Firm and silky. Fine grain texture. Zingy finish. Dense. Wound ball of silk. Screw cap. Love now but will improve for decades." James Suckling

Pretty As A Picture
Pretty Paddock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Gold Marlborough Wine Show 2016
18+/20 Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
5 stars (93/100) Wine Orbit. They said...
"Precise and pristine, this fabulously aromatic sauvignon shows feijoa, grapefruit, lime zest and herbaceous characters on the nose. The palate is intensely flavoured and vibrant, and offers excellent fruit weight and power, wonderfully structured by bright acidity. Classically expressed and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2019."

No Tour Here. Itís Tiki Tiki
Tiki Tiki Estate Waipara Pinot Gris 2016
Gold NZ International Wine Show 2017. They said...
"Concentrated, almost luscious, with pear drop, beeswax and flower blossom aromas and orange curd infusing the tropical fruit taste with underlying flint fresh apple acidity."

Absolute Bargain Gewurz
Kahurangi Nelson Gewurztraminer 2014
4 Stars 18/20 4 Stars Raymond Chan Wine Reviews.
Pure Silver Air New Zealand Wine Awards 2014
".. The nose is soft and gently voluminous with good depth of rose-petal florals harmoniously presented with aroma of musk and root ginger, unfolding nuances of mineral, honeysuckle and creaming soda...Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features gently luscious flavours of tropical fruits, Turkish Delight, musk and honeysuckle. The wine is up-front and creamy in texture, with soft acidity adding to the richness and lusciousness...This is a rich, lush, smooth-textured off-dry Gewurztraminer with up-front exotic flavours..."
Since this review the wine has really started to show its class in the bottle. It has bloomed into a full on Gewurztraminer: lush, loaded with lychee and turkish delight, creamy and delightful. A must for Gewurz lovers.
