Vasse Felix winemaker Virginia Willcock is making Cabernet sexy again – and her “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”
This reeks class and elegance, not your standard blockbuster Aussie style. Medium bodied, delicious juicy fruit filled wine with silky tannins and a herby savoury characters. Time after time this one proves itself to be one seriously delicious Cabernet!
Scoring 93/100 with Ray Jordan, one of Aussie’s most experienced wine scribblers, who said “This is such a good cabernet, especially when you consider the price of $30. It seems the Filius rows in sophistication and varietal expression each year.”
Food match – think autumn and winter grub. Roast lamb with roast veggies. Delicious!
