This wine expresses the distinct regional profile of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon and the site characters it takes from the Vasse Felix vineyards, with a focus on Wilyabrup. It was the first red wine produced in Margaret River and has been made every year since 1972.

Bright, clear crimson-purple; the bouquet sets the scene with its pristine display of redcurrant and blackcurrant fruit, with the barest hint of cedar, the silky medium-bodied palate unhurriedly imposing itself on the way through to the lingering finish. Classic restraint. James Halliday, Rating 95, 27th July 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Dark red with a ruby hue.
Subtle but incredibly complex fragrance with blueberry, a hint of blackcurrant fruit, floral violet notes and a subtle twiggy, Australian bush quality. Light antique and mocha oak nuances complement the dark fruit.
Succulent yet fine with raspberry pip flavour and a hint of blackcurrant, leading to an abundance of fine grained tannin which stretches long and relaxed. A berry coulis tang with floral and earthy lines run through the length of the palate before a dry fragrant finish of exceptional poise and persistence.
