The fruit sourced to make this wine has been selected from vines established in 1967, the oldest vines in the Margaret River region. The reputation of Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon has been founded to a large degree on elegant understated bordeaux style blends.
Only the finest parcels of fruit are selected for the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon and new french oak plays a major part in the finesse of the wine. In 1993 we commenced with barrel fermentation of a portion of the blend adding a rich, sweet integrated oak component, and allowing malo-lactic fermentation to occur in the barrel, giving the wine length. The grapes were also left to ripen later than in previous vintages.
