Vasse Felix Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

The picture-perfect season has put forward one of the longest-lived Vasse Felix cabernets to date. This is a textbook cabernet of exacting definition and precision. The bouquet has a gorgeous lift of violet petals while the palate carries all the hallmarks of blackcurrants, high cocoa dark chocolate and classic, Margaret River graphite-fine tannins. Impeccably ripe, belying its alcohol (14.5%), with confident, refreshing acidity holding it taut and fine, making for incredible line and persistence. A cellaring special for $30 at WineStar, Nicks and Wine List Australia.
