Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, Western Australia, 2018   

Grapes: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon2% Malbec8% Petit Verdot

On the nose a powerful lift of exotic floral, red fruits, ocean and forest. Notes of blackcurrant and red cherry intertwine with Aussie forest floor, cedar, nori, hot granite and lavender. An open and vibrant palate with lovely raspberry, blackcurrant, wood spice and sweet tobacco leaf, leads into a rich volume of fine terracotta tannins that are long, allowing the perfume to extend. Fine acid freshness, beautiful fruit succulence and a dark chocolate finish add to this elegant but powerful wine. 

 "Fermentation with wild yeast for this wine, with a higher portion of Petit Verdot (compared to previous vintages) and a small portion of Malbec in the blend. 18 months in French oak barriques (44% new). Very intense in colour, there's lift and fragrance here for sure, some smokiness and roasted chestnut, a touch of blood and savoury tapenade and a substantial base of black fruit. In the mouth immense sweet fruit forms a solid core, with lots of energy from the juicy acidity, tannins roughening like plum skins, and the barrel component enhancing the dark espresso roast of the finish."

92/100 points, Tom Cannavan, January 2021
