In our eyes Cabernet Sauvignon is the most noble red variety in the world. This variety tells the history of Vasse Felix and the Margaret River wine region.
Dr Tom Cullity made the first Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon at Vasse Felix in 1972. It has been crafted every vintage since.
“When Cabernet is great, it has aromatic perfumes unlike any other variety. It is full of fragrant red berry fruit, sometimes blackberry, floral notes, wonderful savoury, gravelly, earthy characters and light notes of winter herbs (sage, rosemary and thyme). The palate can be succulent and juicy on entry with a wonderful build of voluminous powdery tannin leaving the mouth dry but full of perfume. It has the ability to have elegance and finesse but with fruit power and tannin simply building to the finish.” Chief Winemaker, Virginia Willcock.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red with a mauve hue.
Complex and intriguing dried sage, aniseed and violet aromas whisper through deeper notes of blackcurrant, dark chocolate and candied orange peel. A sophisticated lick of French oak provides hints of graphite and vanilla.
Beguiling cranberry and blackberry flavours and an invigorating tangy acidity combine seamlessly to provide great intensity and succulence, whilst ultra-fine, structural tannins draw the palate to a tight, dry and delicate, perfumed finish.
Drinks beautifully now, will reward cellaring over the next 8-10 years.
