Vasse Felix, Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
This Cabernet is blended with small amounts of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot, giving it a lifted nose of dried fruit, plum, leather, peppery spice and dried herbs. The palate has a dried fruit profile, filled out with black cherry and liquorice notes and fine, chalky tannins. There is a balancing acidity which ensures that it doesn’t come across as too heavy, instead accentuating an elegant, hedgerow fruit character.
