It was as recently as 1965 that Dr John S Gladstones brought the world's attention to Margaret River. Two years later Dr Tom Cullity planted vines and Vasse Felix was born. The profoundly perfumed and structured bond of Merlot and Cabernet is synonymous with Margaret River. Cabernet's firm tannin structure is mellowed by the generosity of Merlot and Malbec, contributing remarkable aromatics, flavour and sound structure. Vasse Felix craft this fashionable accord to strike the perfect balance and deliver a deeply satisfying experience to all red wine enthusiasts.
Parcels are all separately crushed into fermenters and treated to a careful cap management and extraction. Traditional vinification controls tannin and colour to conjure up a deeply coloured wine with great structure, length and defined expression of each variety. Cabernet Sauvignon is treated to a suitable duration of maceration to extract a fine backbone of structural tannins and blackcurrant laden fruit. The Merlot parcels underwent a cold pre fermentation maceration before being pressed off skins early to maintain a soft luscious mouth feel. The inclusion of Malbec really lifts the wine to glorious heights. The finished Felix is matured for a year in a selection of new to five year old French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Deep red with crimson hue. Fresh raspberry, red and black currant aromas support delicate herbal nuances of mint and bay leaf. Beautifully integrated, the French oak provides a subtle vanillin and spice fragrance. The palate alights with sweet fruit, fine powdery tannins and a juicy, mouth watering acid structure. A lovely contrast of red berry, fresh mint and dried bay leaf, finishing fine and long on sweet and savoury notes of earth and spice.

About the Vasse Felix Winery
Planted by Dr Tom Cullity in 1967, Vasse Felix was the first vineyard and winery to be established in the Margaret River region
Situated in the sub-region of Willyabrup, Vasse Felix is now owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family. Visitors to the winery are welcomed by a unique underground cellar, a spectacular restaurant overlooking the original 1967 plantings and an exquisite art gallery, making Vasse Felix one of the great drawcards of the region. Margaret River enjoys perfect conditions for viticulture. It's Mediterranean climate features mild, wet winters and warm, dry summers - ideal for the growth of high quality fruit. By comparison with Bordeaux, Margaret River enjoys less rain during a longer, drier moderate growing and ripening period. In 1965 Dr John S Gladstones emphasised the region's suitability on his report "The Climate and Soils of Southern WA in relation to Vine Growing". Two years later Dr Tom Cullity planted his Vasse Felix vines. Vasse Felix»
