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.

About Vasse Felix
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”.
