2018 Vasse Felix, “Filius” Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia
Roving Sommelier is passionate about premium quality Australian regional wines. Vasse Felix is the founding wine estate of Margaret River, the world-renowned Bordeaux-esque red wine region in Australia’s far south-west. The Filius (meaning ‘the son of’) Cabernet Sauvignon is vibrant, well- structured and generous in style, reflecting its pristine environment. It is estate grown, made and bottled with minimal intervention, led by highly awarded winemaker, Virginia Wilcock.
Best enjoyed with flavoursome food, especially roast lamb and in a convivial atmosphere. This full-bodied red wine would perhaps also benefit from decanting before service and will continue to age well in the cellar for up to a further ten years.
