Vasse Felix Heytesbury Margaret River

If 2008 is the greatest Heytesbury yet, 2010 is at least its equal and may yet go down as the finest in the 46 year history of Margaret River’s oldest vineyard. Cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot and malbec are impeccably interwoven, showcasing breathtaking vibrancy of crunchy, tangy blackcurrant fruit, yet deep-set in its concentration and enduring persistence. Beautiful violet fragrance emanates amidst notes of tobacco and cedar, framed in fine-grained tannins of graphite finesse yet commanding longevity. Come back in a decade – or three. $65 at The Glass.
