Colour: Deep maroon with a bright ruby red hue.
Nose: The nose heralds a pure, refreshing and sophisticated wine. Elevated regional fragrance of cassis, liquorice, bay leaf and violets with savoury mushroom, loamy earth, dark chocolate and dry twiggy details combining to form an alluring Cabernet bouquet.
Palate: The palate is compact and concentrated in flavour but well resolved in structure with a stunning silky texture at such a young age. There is a seemingly bottomless depth of blue and purple berries, nuances of herb and liquorice, cedar and light wood smoke, with a gentle mouth-coating tannin persisting.
The Vasse Felix estate includes four vineyards throughout the Margaret River wine region. The sites have been selected for their unique topography, micro-climates and natural drainage.
The best suited grape varieties have been matched to each vineyard, and specific rows and blocks have been planted to correspond with topography and soil type.
A 'hands off' philosophy is undertaken, working to the philosophy of achieving ‘fruit quality through plant health, and plant health through soil health’.
