Wine of the Week AU

Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Margaret River, AUD $47

A superb wine and a great follow on from the 2014. Excellent regional expression with a mix of dark and red berries. The palate is intensely flavoured with a tight structure supported by a frame of fine tannin. Alongside the cabernet is around 9% malbec, plus a splash of petit verdot, which both contribute to the depth and complexity of the wine. I adore its composure and gentle underlying savouriness.
