Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Malbec
Twice a year we get offered a 'deal' on the Vasse Felix Filius wines and it's that time now. Over the past 4-5 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! 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.
The ocean-breeze-cooled Margaret River is Australia's finest wine region. Here, Virginia Willcock, one of the most awarded winemakers in Australia, makes this delicious Cabernet-Merlot blend. Expect excellently woven hints of plum, mocha and cedar.
Winery notes (2018 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.
Fragrant Australian dry forest aromas are complemented by notes of gravelly earth, redcurrant, satsuma plum, liquorice, black olive skin, mocha and a subtle hint of toasted cedar. The palate is elegant and medium bodied, the wine displays a concentration of blackberry fruit at its core, enveloped by a twiggy, savoury tannin succulence. A touch of graphite hints at the pure Cabernet line, while softer red fruit accents – courtesy of the Malbec and Merlot – lighten and brighten the palate."
