    Vasse Felix winemaker Virginia Willcock is making Cabernet sexy again – and her 2016 “Filius” Cabernet Sauvignon is a prime example of why the world fell in love with this style of red from this neck of the woods.

    We’re talking Margaret River in Western Australia. World renowned for producing kick arse Cabernet and Chardonnay, often benchmarked against top Bordeaux and Burgundy in France. Aussie’s leading wine critic James Halliday calls it “Australia’s most important wine region” while the world’s leading wine guru Robert Parker and his crew of critics have been raving about it in a recent article named “Western Australia: Killing it”

    We absolutely dig this ’16 release – and so do a couple of top Aussie critics who said this in their reviews…

    94/100 – Ray Jordan (The West Australian Wine Guide 2019)
    “Mighty good cabernet to be the third tier of Vasse’s cabernet-dominant brigade…Plenty of leafy black fruits with an edge of savoury black olive. So bright and with so much energy on the palate. Cellar 8 years.”

    93/100 – Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
    “The entry level Cabernet from Vasse Felix, and very good it is too. Perfume, earthy lead pencil stuff, dark fruits, a little bay leaf and spice. It’s medium-bodied, dark fruit, tobacco, dark chocolate liquorice, herbal tension, crisp and so well defined, firm fine tannin, tight long finish. Complex savoury flavour, excellent shape, and high drinking pleasure. Tops.”

    This reeks class and elegance, not your standard blockbuster Aussie style. Medium bodied, delicious juicy fruit filled wine with silky tannins and a herby savoriness. One seriously delicious Cabernet at an incredible price!

    Food match – think autumn and winter grub. Roast lamb with roast veggies. Delicious!
