45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot & 1% Cabernet Franc
This is easily one of the greatest deals we have seen out of Australia for a long while and certainly the best ever out of Western Australia. This is absolutely unbelievable buying from one of Margaret River's best and original producers, Vasse Felix. 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 up big time and be in quick!
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2014 Vintage)
"It is beautifully fragrant on the nose displaying cassis, dark plum, nutmeg and cigar characters with hints of cocoa and spice. The palate delivers excellent fruit weight and silky texture, brilliantly framed by fine, chalky tannins. A delightfully drinkable and appealing red offering both elegant style and fruit richness. At its best: now to 2020."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, February 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"Dark, deep, even ruby-red colour with black-purple hues, showing a little lighter on the rim. The nose is youthfully fresh and firm with bright, primary aromas of ripe black plums entwined with blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. The aromatics are tightly bound, but intense and deep, unfolding in volume with aeration to reveal some pencilly oak elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is fine in proportion with sweet, ripe black plum, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit flavours. The mouthfeel is vibrantly fruited and supported by balanced, fine-grained tannin extraction and structure, along with subtle acid freshness, lending accessibility. The wine carries with good drive and energy to a lingering finish of black fruits. This is an elegantly concentrated, sweetly ripe, vibrant black-fruited Cabernet and Merlot blend with fine, balanced structure. Match with lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 5-6 years. 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, from northern Margaret River, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 8% new French oak."
4 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, April 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"​Vasse Felix was actually the very first vineyard and winery to be established in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia, having been founded in 1967 by Dr Thomas Cullity. It’s a gorgeous Bordeaux blend where eucalypt and bay leaf notes cloak the dark berry intensity, cocoa, tar and tobacco aromas.  The oak is beautifully integrated and compliments hints of smoke, soy and graphite in the mid palate."
