Winemaker Notes

Deep crimson in color with purple hues. A very complex yet attractive nose of dark cherries, exotic spice and savory earthy notes with an underlying bitter chocolate/mocha character. The aromatics are deeply concentrated with rich brambly fruits yet contained by fine white pepper, cloves and freshly milled ground spice characters.

This wine shows great varietal definition with a complex array of flavors for Shiraz. The oak offers some dusty/toasty depth but is entirely secondary. The palate delivers sweet dense ripe fruit of cherries and turkish delight but well harnessed by fine tannins and some structural French oak. A long, seamless wine with a good mouthfeel and powdery texture. Full-bodied and powerful, this wine is designed to age over the next 8-10 years.

Vasse Felix, Margaret River, Australia
2004 Shiraz
Wine Enthisiast Magazine 2017 Wine Star Award Winner for New World Winery of the Year.

Planted in 1967, Vasse Felix was the first vineyard to be established in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia.

Family owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family, Vasse Felix is internationally recognized as a leading Margaret River winery, restaurant and cellar door and is found in the heart of Margaret River's famous sub-region, Willyabrup.

Long growing seasons, ancient soils and cooling sea breezes from the Southern and Indian Oceans provide the Vasse Felix vineyards with ideal viticultural conditions to craft consistent, elegant and complex wines with pronounced varietal character and aroma.

Margaret River

View all wine

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. Complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are another regional specialty. Also common here are refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as earthy, aromatic Bordeaux red blends.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

In the Glass

At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

Perfect Pairings

Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
