‘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.
"..suave wine for true connoisseurs."
A classic, blackcurrant leaf perfume and sleek plummy palate make this a lip-smacking, medium-weight, suave wine for true connoisseurs. Decant it and drink it with the Sausage and winter veg traybake.
Vasse Felix ‘Filius’ Cabernet Merlot 2016 is a lovely introduction to their wines. It’s very fragrant with cassis, some dried herb and black olives, the palate offers earthy, savoury notes with more cassis before a very satisfying long, elegant finish. Great value on special offer and it just cries out for roast lamb.
