- 95 Punkte The Western Australian: „As the pioneer winery in Australia's Margaret River wine region, Vasse Felix's commitment to Syrah is historic, with the oldest Syrah vineyards. The Vasse Felix Syrah is a modern, elegant, cool climate style crafted from our premier parcels of southern Margaret River Syrah (Shiraz).
The 2021 Vasse Felix Syrah is a transparent bright ruby with a purple tinge. On the nose, lifted aniseed, white pepper, cacao, clove and pine sawdust sit on bright fragrant raspberry, cranberry and Japanese sour plum. Beautifully silky entrance, with chalkiness on the finish leaving a dry and immensely fragrant perfume lingering. Raspberry and cranberry juice with a red peppercorn spice and a hint of red liquorice remain. An excellent wine to pair with red meats, hearty stews, poultry, and red sauce pasta dishes.“
- 94 Punkte James Halliday’s Wine Copanion und Special Value for Money, Jane Faulkner: „Not the easiest vintage in Margs, but you wouldn’t know it with this buoyant yet savoury offering. If anything, it needs more time in the bottle as it’s highlighting the exuberance of youth with its poppy dark fruits all spiced and tarted up with cranberry juice flavour. As it opens in the glass more layers are revealed, the texture of fine sandy tannins and lots of them, there’s a stony quality in a positive way as this is still tight. Savoury, complex and appealing. Drink by 2033.“

|Winemaker´s Comment: Over the last few years we have been increasing the portions of our more southern, spicy parcels of fruit, as well as the percentage of carbonic maceration and whole bunch fermentation due to the vibrancy, complexity and drinkability these techniques bring to the final wine. A portion of the fruit was carefully tipped into an oak vat as whole bunches. The vat was closed up, filled with CO2 and left untouched for 7 days, causing an enzymatic fermentation in the uncrushed berry. The fruit was then foot stomped and allowed to start wild fermentation. The balance of the fruit was wild fermented as whole berries in stainless steel fermenters with open lid and oxidative handling, and only the wild yeast was allowed to ferment. The fermented small batches were pressed to only older French oak barriques and older oak vats for only 11 months to ensure the wine retains its elegant fine fruit perfumes. The 2021 vintage is elegant and fresh from a cool season. Vintage Notes: A year of peculiar weather where our commitment to organic viticulture was vital to the successful growth of quality, balanced fruit. A cool and wet spring prompted the need for an intense leaf plucking program to mitigate disease risk. Luckily, December and January were warm and dry. Canopy management was a priority throughout February and March to combat unusually warm and moist conditions. A rainfall event in early February provided a timely drink for the red varietals, followed by warm weather which was ideal for the Chardonnay to achieve ripeness. A second rainfall incident in early March was followed by sunny and breezy conditions to dry off the fruit for healthy ripening. With our judicious canopy management and a crop of naturally resilient grapes, we are pleased to say that fantastic quality fruit was ripened and harvested with little-to-no disease in our vineyards.
