Winemaker Notes

The 2008 release is a deep red with a brick red/maroon hue. The aroma is intensely varietal and savory with a strong base of black currant fruit supporting layers of lifted pot pouri, violets and Margaret River's distinctive dried sage and bay leaf characters. These aromas are further enhanced by a lick of lovely spicy, vanillan French oak. The wine enters the mouth elegantly with velvety tannins caressing and coating the front palate. Juicy and vivacious raspberry and red currant fruits explode on the mid palate with hints of sweet toasty oak and a honeyed tobacco flavor. The fruit and oak flavors are lifted and carried by a bright and tight mineral acidity with runs through a core of characteristic sinewy Cabernet tannins. The finish, loaded full of red fruits, cool menthod, violets and chocolate oak, is long, chalky and dry.

92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Constricted at first, this is a powerful cabernet with energy to spare. The gragrand red plum and strawberry flavors develop out of a dense, compacted core, their sappy richness balanced by fresh acidity. As the wine evolves with air, it yields scents of the coastal forest - eucalyptus and cactus - that add to its disctinctive flavor. Decant a bottle for Cantonese spare ribs.

Wine Enthusiast
Vasse Felix is making boldly flavored yet balanced Margaret River wines epitomized by this Cabernet, which features cassis and mint aromas, bright fruit-driven flavors that manage to avoid jamminess and a firm, tannic finish. Drink 2013-2020.
Editor's Choice
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is fully mature but in no danger of imminent collapse. There's a slightly herbal lift on the nose—hints of sage and bay leaf—then fresh red currants and raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky in texture, with a gently lingering finish.

Vasse Felix  Winery Video

Established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity, Vasse Felix is Margaret River's founding wine estate. Pristine isolation, ancient lands and twin oceans make Margaret River a wine paradise and one of the world’s greatest environments to grow ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. These varieties, alongside Shiraz and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends are the primary focus at Vasse Felix. All wines are grown in Vasse Felix’s four Margaret River vineyards then vinified and bottled within the modern winery, situated at the Home Vineyard overlooking the Wilyabrup Brook. The Vasse Felix Cellar Door - also located at the Home Vineyard - is renowned. Featuring a tasting room, wine lounge, art gallery, wine museum and one of Australia's most acclaimed restaurants, visitors are welcomed from all around the world, eager for the ultimate Vasse Felix experience.

There are many things that make Vasse Felix the special place it is: the incredible environment and climate of Margaret River, their secure family ownership, their treasured heritage, and their priceless vineyards. But above all, it's the dedication of the entire team to continue Dr Cullity's original aim for Vasse Felix: "to make the best possible wine".
