2016 Vasse Felix Filius Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon
Filius is the "second label" for Vasse Felix, but there are plenty of winemakers who would be happy to have this as their "first" wine.'
How’s it taste?
Vasse Felix have done it again. Here we have yet another cedary, bay leaf and blackcurrant laden red that is just packed with character. And tannins! Made for the cellar, it's the best value Margaret River Cabernet ANYWHERE!
Who made it?
Vasse Felix was the first vineyard and winery to be established in Western Australia’s Margaret River region. Established in 1967 by Dr Tom Cullity, it is situated in the Willyabrup sub region where ancient soils and cooling Southern and Indian Ocean breezes provide ideal conditions for fine wine production. Vasse Felix is owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family. The Vasse Felix winemaking team shares a common goal in crafting wines of exceptional quality from unique vineyard sites. Under the direction of Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock, the objective remains the same today as it did 40 years ago. A precise understanding of local viticulture and environment is coupled with a hands on winemaking approach. The Vasse Felix style shows concentration and complexity while retaining signature elegance and finesse. It is a testament to winemaking and viticultural dedication and attention to detail throughout the year. The revered Vasse Felix Heytesbury wines are produced in limited quantities from a barrel selection of the finest fruit parcels each vintage. Vasse Felix continues to be one of the most highly awarded and visited wineries in Australia.
