A soft and sumptuous Margaret River Shiraz. Vasse Felix Classics are fruit-driven, approachable styles that have become some of Australia's most popular everyday classics since their inception in the 1980s.
An exceptionally dry Spring resulted in small balanced canopies and early development stages. A very warm Summer with timely rainfall around veraison was followed with rapid ripening to an early vintage. Whites were harvested in a very short time frame though retained good acidity. Reds were early but slowed a little with milder conditions in March, resulting in excellent quality.
A shiraz cabernet blend from Margaret River. In fact it's one of the most famous of this style and name. Perfectly balanced and poised with the earthy savoury cut of shiraz sitting snugly with the firmer thread of cabernet. The palate is quite dense yet there is a refined elegance which is sustained to a long finish.
