Vasse Felix 2021 "Filius" Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

$ 2699 $ 2899

Vasse Felix is the oldest producer in Western Australia's Margaret River District and were the first to plant Cabernet Sauvignon there. We've been big fans for a while now but sadly it has suddenly become hard to source as the Wine Spectator just named it their #2 Value Wine of 2023! A couple of cases arrived today and a few more will arrive on Tuesday. Beyond that we're not sure how much longer we'll be able to offer this spectacular bargain Cabernet Sauvignon.


93pts Wine Spectator - #2 Wine Value of the Year

Margaret River Cabernets are remarkable for their combination of elegant structure and juicy fruit flavors, with the best among them demonstrating a particular finesse. Vasse Felix is a pioneer in the region, commanding more than 50 years of winemaking—and, under the leadership of chief winemaker Virginia Willcock, the wines have never been better. The Filius line of Vasse Felix wines is meant to be approachable while young. For this bottling, Margaret River Cabernet is blended with Malbec from estate vineyards. Willcock employs wild-yeast fermentation in open-top fermenters, resulting in expressive aromatics and soft tannins, followed by 11 months of aging in French oak barrels before blending. When Willcock first started experimenting with indigenous fermentation, what she found was “mind-blowing,” with the wines showing more heart, soul and earth than ever before. “We’re finding that the wines are more naturally sound,” she says. “There is more vibrancy to the fruit.”
