A rich deep red colour with crimson hues.
An inky and concentrated wine with cooler climate of southern Margaret River giving the wine a tight
structure to the ripe and complex dark fruits.
Hints of bitter chocolate, peppery and brambly tarry berries and well-knit oak provide for a big mouthful.
The Shiraz fruit for this wine was sourced from 4 subregions of the Margaret River region, all contributing different characters to this complex wine. The northern most being the Yallingup subregion showing spice and peppery notes, inland in the Carbunup region showing liquorice and cherry, Willyabrup at Vasse Felix’s original vineyard showing spice and plum characters, and Karridale showing pepper, plum and spicy flavours. The first Shiraz vines in Margaret River were planted in 1967 at Vasse Felix’s original vineyard where the winery is today.
This wine will develop beautifully over the next 5-7 years.
