Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red in color with a crimson hue. Rich, concentrated blackcurrant, violets, bay leaf and dried twigs with hints of mocha, menthol and graphite that are perfectly framed by the subtle spicy, vanillin French oak. Enters the mouth rich and seductive, with a mixture of blackcurrant, bay leaf and chocolate dust then bursts to life with an explosion of tangy, bright acidity. It finishes fragrant, long and full of superb, fine, structured, dry tannins.

About Vasse Felix:

Planted in 1967, Vasse Felix was the first vineyard to be established in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia.

Family owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family, Vasse Felix is internationally recognized as a leading Margaret River winery, restaurant and cellar door and is found in the heart of Margaret River's famous sub-region, Willyabrup.

Long growing seasons, ancient soils and cooling sea breezes from the Southern and Indian Oceans provide the Vasse Felix vineyards with ideal viticultural conditions to craft consistent, elegant and complex wines with pronounced varietal character and aroma.
