‘Son of’ the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon. This regional blend incorporates more opulent fruit from each of the Vasse Felix Vineyards. Generous portions of Merlot contribute to a succulent wine with approachable tannins.
Moderate spring conditions at the end of 2015 helped establish a healthy fruitset and better yields than the previous two seasons. January temperatures were warm, interrupted by one rainfall event late in the month, great viticulture management, clean, well-trimmed canopies and subsequent warm weather prevented disease risk.
94 points - 2015 vintage
It has all the hallmarks of the warmer part of Margaret River, flavour building relatively early and sustained throughout the length of he palate. Juicy cassis in the cornerstone, but there are notes of dried herbs, blac olive and oak adding complexity and legnth. Screwcap. 14% alc. Rating 94. Drink to 2029.
Delicious, elegant, fragrant - 2014 vintage
One of my favourite mainstream Aussie producers. My notes read 'Delicious, elegant, fragrant, velvety - why drink Bordeaux?' Why indeed at this price? Pair with roast lamb.
Balanced - 2014 vintage
This blend balances the concentration and structure of dark black fruits with cedary French oak and fine tannins. Rustic, earthy notes entwine with aromatics of pomegranate and cranberry. The bright palate structure shows wonderful herbal notes of sage and oregano, a great match for the tarragon in the salsa.
