Distinguished Langtons Classification. For as long as Margaret River has been famous, it has been famous for Cabernet. Vasse Felix is the region's original winery and protagonist of the stately Cabernet Sauvignon genre. A measure of Merlot and Malbec can be added in varying proportions from vintage to vintage, softening the tannin profile and contributing perfumed, floral lift to the beautifully fragrant nose. The structure is fine and firm with a freshness of acidity that makes the mouth water. Rich, dusty tannins support a wine of great power, persistence and length.
The finest Cabernet Sauvignon from Vasse Felix in four decades? Every vintage is part of an evolution. A pioneer of the region, Vasse Felix first released Cabernet in 1972. Intense and statuesque, yet elegantly structured, it is the single most enduring Margaret River wine. Cabernet Sauvignon is a robust varietal that consistently achieves a high quality wine when grown to the Margaret River's temperate ripening conditions and deep, well drained soils. All parcels are vinified separately before eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and older French oak barriques, followed by individual batch selection and the final assemblage.
TASTING NOTES
Deep maroon colour, slight purple hue. Stunningly complex perfume, exhibiting a level of integration that makes the wine difficult to pull apart. Layers of blackberry and blackcurrant mingle seamlessly with hints of dried herbs and candied orange. Fragrant, spicy oak sits beautifully in the background. Succulent blackberry and cassis fruit flavours provide a ripe density to the palate, oak spice adds a savoury edge.

More 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»
