Wine Enthusiast – New World Winery of the Year 2017

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 7% Malbec & 1% Petit Verdot

Twice a year we get offered a 'deal' on the Vasse Felix Filius wines and it's that time now. Over the past 3-4 years this label has built quite a following, especially when it is on this 'Deal Pricing. Strangely it seems that NZ is the only market where this pricing is offered. We are not complaining! Vasse Felix were awarded the "Wine Enthusiast New World Winery of the Year" last year and they well and truly deserve that accolade from one of the top wine magazines in the US. This deal is easily one of the best we see out of Australia, definitely the best from Western Australia and is absolutely unbelievable buying from one of Margaret River's premier and original producers, Vasse Felix. 

For those of you who have followed this label over the past few years will find the 2016 is quite a ripe, generous wine. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot. This excellent Cabernet Merlot blend has fantastic concentration of blackcurrant fruit backed up with cedary oak and fine tannins – a style of elegance and finesse rather than power. Stock is limited so get in quick.

The West Australian Wine Guide 2018
"Such an elegant and stylish cabernet that captures the regional stamp or Margaret River. It's a wine that clearly over-delivers at this price."

Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"‘Son of’ the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon. This regional blend incorporates more opulent fruit from each of the Vasse Felix Vineyards. Generous portions of Merlot contribute to a succulent wine with approachable tannins.

Displays a delicate fruit lift, with savoury scented vine leaf, a hint of black olives, liquorice and an underlying loamy earth character. A very bright and pretty wine on the palate, delivering currant and cherry flavours, while maintaining a perky juiciness that makes for easy drinking and pairs with a range of food. The Cabernet tannins are ever present yet super fine, and supportive of the softer Merlot and Malbec which fill the centre."
