Winemaker Notes

Dark red with a ruby hue. Subtle but incredibly complex fragrance with blueberry, a hint of blackcurrant fruit, floral violet notes and a subtle twiggy, Australian bush quality. Light antique and mocha oak nuances complement the dark fruit. Succulent yet fine with raspberry pip flavor and a hint of blackcurrant, leading to an abundance of fine grained tannin which stretch long and relaxed. A berry coulis tang with floral and earthy lines run through the length of the palate before a dry fragrant finish of exceptional poise and persistence.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling
A very floral and aromatic wine with currant and rose petal. Even fresh basil. Full body, yet very tight and refined with polished and beautiful tannins. Very long and focused. Reserved yet vibrant. Screw cap. Drink or hold.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Floral and bright up front, with scents of violets and currants, this wine contrasts the velvet smoothness of oak tannins with tighter, more vertical elements that balance the caramelized sweetness of the oak. Scents of cinnamon and boxwood last in the finish. Decant for slow-roasted short ribs.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This crisp, medium-bodied wine showcases Cabernet's hallmark cassis fruit. Sure, there are hints of cranberry, raspberry and cherry, but black currant defines this wine, running from start to finish. Dusty tannins swirl gently on the palate, combining with tart acidity to offer just the right amount of structure. Drink now–2025.
D 90
Decanter
Boasting a maritime climate, sited on a peninsula sticking out into the Indian Ocean, Margaret River produces elegant, medium bodied Cabernets that are well balanced and well structured. This Cabernet is blended with small amounts of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot, giving it a lifted nose of dried fruit, plum, leather, peppery spice and dried herbs. The palate has a dried fruit profile, filled out with black cherry and liquorice notes and fine, chalky tannins. There is a balancing acidity which ensures that it doesn't come across as too heavy, instead accentuating an elegant, hedgerow fruit character.

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".

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. Complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are another regional specialty. Also common here are refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as earthy, aromatic Bordeaux Red Blends.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
