Vasse Felix 'Filius' Cabernet Sauvignon 2022

Profile Fruity
Region Margaret River
Body Medium

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 on release, or up to 5 years
On the nose
Lovely blood plum and cassis fragrance, with graphite, bay laurel, violets, spicy charcuterie, and a hint of bouquet garni mixed with cedar.
On the palate
Incredibly soft, juicy and approachable with intense dark fruit flavour. Silken berry puree with fresh fruit acidity and a soft powdery dry tannin finish with lingering cassis and dark chocolate flavours.
Product Notes
The individual batches were destemmed and sent as whole berries to stainless steel rotating fermenters. 100% wild yeast was allowed to ferment all our red batches. After a few days in a gentle soak, fermentation kicked off, with batches pressed once fermentation was complete. Open top and use of aeration during fermentation helped to promote a clean fruit perfume, soften the tannins and bring so much life to the wine. The resulting wines were matured in fine French oak for 11 months prior to blending, with limited racking to help preserve the delicate wild characters captured in this low intervention approach.
