There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility.

Vasse Felix Classic Dry Red CONFIRM VINTAGE

Margaret River Western Australia
Shiraz grown to the sultry climes of Margaret River is instantly recognizable for its sweetness and power on the palate, as well as the attractive floral, anise and cherry characters which form the body and flesh. Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure and length, further defining the tannins and contributing a savoury backbone which constructs a more complete wine. The Cabernet Shiraz vintages of Vasse Felix are legendary, known for their generous palates brimming with sweet red berry fruits, velvet textures and judicious measure of finely integrated oak.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$227.00
Shiraz and Cabernet are harvested and separately crushed to fermenters, allowing for careful cap management and aeration, a process vital to harnessing the true potential of Margaret River reds. Vinification, maceration and aerations are employed to achieve the gentlest extraction of colour and tannins, preserving a true expression of each varietal. A small amount of Viognier may be co fermented with a parcel of Shiraz while on skins to add perfume and contribute some succulence to the palate. Components are matured fourteen months in a selection of seasoned French and American oak barriques before assembling into the finished wine.

Full, round and juicy mouthfeel with tannins that are soft and silky upfront, a middle palate bursting with blackberry and raspberry fruits, pepper and cedar.
