Vasse Felix - Shiraz
Colour: Deep red with a vibrant purple hue
Nose: Bright raspberry and cranberry fruit characters mingle with underlying graphite and warm stone notes. Subtle hints of sweet earth and potpourri deliver an aromatic lift.
Palate: An elegant, pretty palate with fine powdery tannins which complement the lively, red-fruit flavoured core. A hint of wood smoke and biscuit add savoury complexity to the lingering finish.
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’.
