The finest Cabernet Sauvignon available to Vasse Felix hails from the northern end of Margaret River, off vines planted to gravel loam soils within eight kilometres of the coast. Individual vineyard sections are fermented as separate parcels, many are left on skins to macerate for up to thirty days. Tannin influence is controlled through traditional oxidative handling, creating a deeply coloured wine with great structure and length. The Cabernet backbone of blackcurrant and herbal nuances with long, dry sinewy tannins is lifted to glorious heights by smaller portions of Merlot and Malbec. The finished wine is aged eighteen months in a selection of new and seasoned, exclusively French oak barriques.
Deep red with crimson hue. Rich, concentrated blackcurrant, violets, bay leaf and dried twigs with hints of mocha, menthol and graphite, all perfectly framed by 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. Finishes fragrant, over a lingering length of finely structured, dry tannins.
