Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

Profile Fruity
Region Margaret River
Body Medium-Full

Vasse Felix was established in 1967 and is the region's founding wine Estate. Unrivalled experience as a vigneron in Margaret River 'wine paradise', with its pristine isolation, ancient lands and twin oceans has led Vasse Felix to adopt organic principles across its four vineyards (NASAA Organic Certified). This builds upon the Estate's reputation for minimal intervention and 'small batch' winemaking, as an intuitive and quality-led progression to achieve Vasse Felix founder Dr Tom Cullity's original aim, 'to make the best possible wine'. All wines are Estate grown, made and bottled. Renowned for their elegance, finesse and balance, these wines tell of the vintage as experienced in Vasse Felix's Premier Vineyards.

Tasting Notes

When to drink
Drink now or carefully cellar for 10-20 years
On the nose
An incredible multi-layered and complex aroma. Red berry fruits with hints of blackcurrant in the periphery envelop super savoury secondary perfumes of champignons and forest floor. The strong Wilyabrup influence is evident with traces of Peppy Tree, floral violets, subtle orange zest and dried oregano.
On the palate
A refreshing yet powerful palate. The refined and elegant, yet buoyant fruit entry is beautifully balanced by super fine long dry tannins. Complex and finessed.
Product Notes
86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Malbec. Cabernet parcels grown in Wilyabrup, (the coastal, mid northern part of Margaret River) on ancient, well drained Ironstone gravel soils produce a wine of great varietal purity and character. These wonderful, often tiny, vineyard sections were individually fermented using indigenous yeasts, with many experiencing maceration periods of up to 34 days. Natural fermentation and extended maceration are coupled with traditional oxidative handling to clearly define the intricate personality of each vineyard site before blending. Malbec remains a valuable component as it always has with our Cabernet Sauvignon.
