From our table to yours, a collection of five decades of moments with the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon as shared by our Cabernet Society in celebration of the 50th vintage release.
Vasse Felix was the first Margaret River winery I visited back when I was travelling with my family in my university years. I didn’t know much about wine at the time but as my family love history, we chose to go to the Margaret River’s founding wine estate to learn about their wines and unique story.
It was the Vasse Felix cabernet that I tasted on that visit that sparked my interest in Margaret River wines. There is something special and unique about Margaret River cabernets. They are approachable, powerful yet elegant. The sea spray perfume brings in great freshness and energy and the lovely chalky tannins evoke shape and complexity. They are definitely world class cabernets with a strong sense of place, distinctive of the Margaret River region.
This was affirmed at a recent international top cabernet blind tasting event I attended where a few of the Margaret River cabernets really stood out amongst other notable cabernets from the rest of the world. The charisma of Margaret River cabernets is really something!
