Excellent Langtons Classification. Vasse Felix are known for their profound and compelling vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon, performing well whatever the vagaries of growing season, by virtue of auspicious soils and propitious clime. Intense, yet elegantly structured, the first red wine ever released from within the nascent Margaret River, it remains to this day, the elder statesman of the region. Fruit is sourced from the best vineyards in Wilyabrup. Cabernet is a robust variety, ideally suited to Margaret River's balmy maritime climate and superb, well drained soils.
The finest Cabernet Sauvignon available to Vasse Felix hails from the northern end of Margaret River, off vines planted to gravel loam soils within eight kilometres of the coast. Individual vineyard sections are fermented as separate parcels, many are left on skins to macerate for up to thirty days. Tannin influence is controlled through traditional oxidative handling, creating a deeply coloured wine with great structure and length. The Cabernet backbone of blackcurrant and herbal nuances with long, dry sinewy tannins is lifted to glorious heights by smaller portions of Merlot and Malbec. The finished wine is aged eighteen months in a selection of new and seasoned, exclusively French oak barriques.
TASTING NOTES
Deep red with crimson hue. Rich, concentrated blackcurrant, violets, bay leaf and dried twigs with hints of mocha, menthol and graphite, all perfectly framed by 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. Finishes fragrant, over a lingering length of finely structured, dry tannins.

About 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»
