Winemaker Notes

Ruby red in color, this wine offers a complex, savory nose embedded with dried twigs, mushroom, soy, kelp, cowhide, peanut husk and cacao. The savory fragrance gives way to fruit cake notes, with orange peel, red gum flower and concentrated blackcurrant combining to form an alluring bouquet. A plump entrance and fruity core lead to building fine, ripe tannins. A line of fresh red berry tang, reminiscent of dried cranberry and blackcurrant flavors, is followed by notes of dry sweet biscuit, chocolate, iron, and spicy oak.

Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling
A very composed and powerful cabernet with plenty of rich red and darker berries such as blueberries, raspberries, redcurrants and cherries. The palate is smoothly rendered with a wealth of fine, densely arrayed tannins. Superb.

COMMENTARY: In a world where many Cabernet Sauvignon regions tout power over finesse, it comes to a welcome relief that we can have beautiful elegance from the Margaret River in Western Australia. As one of the world's standout regions for this grape variety, this region deserves more attention than it currently receives. The 2015 Vasse Felix is an outstanding example of the best wines from this growing region. TASTING NOTES: This wine is elegant and persistent. Its aromas and flavors of savory spices and black fruit should pair beautifully with a double-cut, grilled pork chop over rice pilaf. (Tasted: February 5, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
D 94
Decanter
Consistently one of region's best value reds, this is soft and fleshy, with mulberry and bramble aromatics and a plush, velvety texture. It has the structure to age, yet is well integrated and opulent, finishing with fine, ripe tannins.
V 93
Vinous

Deep ruby. Expressive blackberry, cherry, candied rose, pipe tobacco and exotic spice scents, along with succulent herb and mineral flourishes. Sappy and penetrating in the mouth, offering densely packed bitter cherry, dark berry, mocha and candied licorice flavors that unfurl slowly through the midpalate. Subtly gripping tannins shape a long, sweet finish that features resonating spice, cherry and floral notes. Drinking window: 2022 - 2031

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Succulent red fruit marks the nose of the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon. Hints of cassis and baking spices add dimension to this medium to full-bodied effort. It's smooth and silky, with a persistent finish. Drink it over the next decade.

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".

Western Australia

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 Sauvignons and Bordeaux Blends with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. For white wines, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are regional specialties.

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, Malbecand 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.
