About the wine:
Dr Tom Cullity was a respected Cardiologist from Western Australia. He discovered the great table wines of Europe in the 1950s while in Britain working at the National Heart Hospital. Upon returning home, Tom set himself a mission to make fine wines in WA. He searched extensively for the perfect plot of land, taking guidance from the research of Professor Harold Olmo (1955) and Dr John Gladstones (1965) before establishing an 8 acre vineyard in Cowaramup called Vasse Felix.

His exhaustive work and persistence led to the successful creation of Margaret River’s first commercial wines. He is remembered for his pioneering role in establishing Margaret River.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Tom Cullity Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec boasts stunningly pure cassis aromas, with just enough hints of mint, sage, cedar and tobacco to impart welcome complexity. It's medium to full-bodied but linear and focused in style, with more length than breadth on the palate, layers of fine, mouth-coating tannins and a long, mouthwatering finish. While by no means unapproachable even now, expect it to be better in another five years and drink well for another decade or more after that." - Joe Czerwinski (11th Jun 2019)

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"The third vintage of Tom Cullity is the best to date. This premium bottling offers threads of graphite, currants, black olives, nori, tomato leaf and roasted green peppers. These flavors, along with spicy French oak, are tightly woven with fine chalky tannins. Power and elegance share the limelight, and linearity trumps roundness and richness. Cellar through 2039. Christina Pickard" - (12/1/2019)

96 Points - James Suckling:
"The 2015 Cullity is all about finesse and power with subtle aromas and flavors of currants, plums and autumnal leaves. Full body and firm, chewy tannins that give the wine length and freshness. Just keeps on growing on the palate. Better after 2022, but already a gem to taste. Drink in 2022 and onwards. Screw cap." - (10 May, 2019)
