85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec & 4% Petit Verdot


Vasse Felix equals high quality Margaret River Cabernet and this entry level label would have many producers wishing it were their top label. This is the fourth vintage release of a Cabernet Sauvignon under the Filius title. The 2017 is ripe and generous and could have you thinking you should drink now, but be assured it will last for many years. A terrific wine.


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
“A deep perfume with blackcurrant, blueberry and coffee mocha complexities. Notes of dusty earth and woody perennial herbs mingle with hints of nori, dried forest leaves and wild mushrooms to create an inviting aroma. A light fragrant entrance with blackcurrant, raspberry and pot pouri builds to earthy complexities and fine dry dusty tannins which serve to frame the fruit. A comfortable, soft, juicy body and tannin profile finishes the wine fresh and long.”


96/100 & Top 100 Wines of 2019 James Halliday (2017 Vintage)
“Bright crimson-purple, this has provenance written large across its visage, likewise purity. Restructuring of the Vasse Felix offers to the market has lifted, not compromised, this dark, fruit-filled Cabernet.​​​​​​​”


95/100 nicks.com.au (2017 Vintage)
“Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. The nose shows good elevation with red to blackcurrant and mulberry scents intermingling with cedary tobacco characters, bay leaf and spice. Despite the cooler vintage this Cabernet shows remarkable richness and polish with a combination of red and black currant fruits flooding the elegant, medium bodied palate. Soft and juicy like in its feel, mulberry, cedary tobacco characters, light earthy bay leaf and spice then chime in to provide additional complexity. Glossy fine grained tannins are beautifully integrated. Concludes with a long red to blackcurrant and bay leaf tinged aftertaste. A Margaret River benchmark for entry level Cabernet – fantastic value.”


Reviews for the 2016 vintage below…


94/100 Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2019 (2016 Vintage)
“Mighty good cabernet to be the third tier of Vasse’s cabernet-dominant brigade. This has slightly more palate grunt than previous wines, but still with that distinctive angular style. Plenty of leafy black fruits with an edge of savoury black olive. So bright and with so much energy on the palate. Cellar 8 years.”


93/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, April 2019 (2016 Vintage)
“The entry level Cabernet from Vasse Felix, and very good it is too. Perfume, earthy lead pencil stuff, dark fruits, a little bay leaf and spice. It’s medium-bodied, dark fruit, tobacco, dark chocolate liquorice, herbal tension, crisp and so well defined, firm fine tannin, tight long finish. Complex savoury flavour, excellent shape, and high drinking pleasure. Tops.”
