Intense, yet elegantly structured, Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon is the oldest serving wine of the region. It comes from our best vineyards in the northern part of Margaret River, centred in the Wilyabrup sub-region. Cabernet is a robust variety, ideally suited to Margaret River's climate and deep, well-drained soils. Aromatic, with a unique structure, to us Cabernet Sauvignon is the most noble of red grape varieties.
A dry, warm spring then summer created a compact and action-packed vintage. Ripening of all varieties occurred up to two weeks earlier than previous years recorded and once the fruit began rolling in it didn't stop. There was no distinguishable break between white and red varieties. Each variety displayed a depth of aroma and density of palate.
