Vasse Felix, Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, 2010
Drinking Window: 2014 - 2030
Intense ginger, spice and dark fruits; a very distinctive character. This has a youthful blueberry attractiveness and is full bodied and layered. Incisively fresh, grippy and very appealing. Vasse Felix was founded by pioneer Dr Thomas Cullity in 1967 and is now owned by Paul Holmes à Court. It is situated in Margaret River, Australia. It is the founding wine estate of Margaret River. Vasse Felix sits in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, with vineyards also located to the north of the region in Carbunup, and to the south, in Karridale, benefit from a micro-climate and natural irrigation. The area has about three main types of soil, a clay based soil, a gravel based type of soil but also a sandy soil. Together, these conditions are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
