Buy Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine Advocate 90 points - Composed of 93.87% Cabernet Sauvignon with 5.18% Malbec and dashes each of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 16 months in French oak, 43% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it offers a very good intensity of pencil lead, cloves and dried Mediterranean herbs notes over a core of cassis and wild blueberries. Medium-bodied, it has a solid backbone of medium to firm chewy tannins and crisp acid supporting the taut, muscular fruit and finishing long. Delicious now, it should cellar to 2018+. (Aug 2013)

Deep red in color with a crimson hue. Rich, concentrated blackcurrant, violets, bay leaf and dried twigs with hints of mocha, menthol and graphite that are perfectly framed by the subtle spicy, vanillin French oak. Enters the mouth rich and seductive, with a mixture of blackcurrant, bay leaf and chocolate dust then bursts to life with an explosion of tangy, bright acidity. It finishes fragrant, long and full of superb, fine, structured, dry tannins.

Vasse Felix was established in 1967 by pioneer Dr Thomas Cullity and is the founding wine estate of Margaret River. Vasse Felix is situated in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, with vineyards also located at northern and southern sites of the wine appellation. The first vineyard blocks were planted in August, 1967. Margaret River experiences the unique combination of a Mediterranean climate, maritime influence and perfect soils for viticulture. Together, these conditions are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The estate is recognised as one of Australia’s drawcard winery destinations and includes a Cellar Door, Restaurant and Art Gallery.
