Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Tiefe karmesinrote Farbe, wirkt sehr lebhaft, frisch und jugendlich. Eine attraktive, blumige Nase mit Cassis-Nuancen und einen Hauch mineralischer Würze. Der Gaumen folgt mit wohligen, vollen Cassis-Aromen und Minzenoten. Die schön integrierten Tanninen und Gerbsäure verleihen dem Wein eine fleischige Struktur und sorgen für ein langes Lagerungspotential von 6 bis 10 Jahren.

Ancient soils and cooling sea breezes from the Southern and Indian Oceans provide the Margaret River wine region with ideal viticultural conditions to craft wines of exceptional concentration and intensity whilst retaining elegance and finesse. Planted by Dr Tom Cullity in 1967, Vasse Felix was the first vineyard and winery to be established in the Margaret River region and is owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family. Situated in the sub-region of Willyabrup, visitors to Vasse Felix are welcomed by a unique underground cellar, a spectacular restaurant overlooking the original 1967 plantings and an exquisite art gallery, making Vasse Felix one of the great drawcards of the Margaret River Wine Region. The name ‘Vasse Felix’ was inspired by an early event in the district. Thomas Vasse was a French seaman who disappeared after his longboat overturned near the site of Busselton whilst exploring the treacherous South West Coastline of Western Australia. (An expedition of Captain Hamelin’s Naturaliste and Captain Baudin’s Geographe) Felix was Hamelin’s middle name, and ironically, is the Latin word for lucky. The Vasse Felix logo is a Peregrine Falcon. When Dr Tom Cullity’s first vines began to bear fruit, native birds or ‘silvereyes’ as they are commonly known, had a keen appetite for the sweet berries, so Dr Cullity trained a falcon to deter the pests. Although much time and effort went into this exercise, upon the falcon’s first free flight it soared into the sky and was never seen again. The Vasse Felix logo endures to this day. The Vasse Felix wines are crafted by Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock, whose understanding and excitement for the region complement the Vasse Felix belief that wines should be unique, distinctive and expressive of their surroundings. The portfolio of Vasse Felix wines represents a definitive expression of variety and sense of place. Vasse Felix continues to be one of the most highly reviewed and visited wineries in Australia, treating wine and food lovers from around the globe with an exquisite restaurant, a welcoming cellar door and art gallery and an unforgettable Margaret River experience.

AUD$30. Intense dark ruby color. Youthful aromas that are slightly restrained, needs a bit of work and swirling to unveil more aromas, notes of blackcurrants, blackberries, warm scrub bush, and hint of blackpepper. A full-bodied wine, robust tannin structure with high acidity. Flavours of blackberry with cedar and spicy seasonings, and pepper on the long finish. Interesting wine to see whether it develops overs two more years, but drinkable now certainly. Drink now – 2017. 89/100

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon gives a nose of ripe black currant, mocha, baking spices and tree bark with touches of black pepper and bay leaf. The full bodied palate is youthfully taut and muscular with a solid structure o... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Der Wein wirkt im Gaumen weich und zeigt grosszügige Aromen von Cassis und Beerenobst. Eine attraktive, blumige Nase. Der Gaumen folgt mit wohligen, vollen Fruchtaromen und Minzenoten.

Der Cabernet/Merlot zeigt in dieser Art eine gute Struktur mit viel Rückgrat. Sein Bouquet ist ausgeprägt voluminös, mit einem Charakter von Maulbeer, Himbeer und gelagertem Holz.

This has fabulous length, with satin-like tannins that are so integrated into the wine. Licorice, currants and hints of spice. Some eucalyptus. Its full but super balanced. Goes on for minutes. Less new French oak in the maturation and better cooper... James Suckling. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2009 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Glass-staining ruby. Spice-accented dark berries, cherry and violet on the aromatic nose. Deeply pitched blackcurrant and candied cherry flavors show a suave blend of sweetness and tension, picking up a licorice quality with aeration. Fine-grained... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
