“Vasse Felix’s winemaker Virginia Willcock, who has been with this producer since 2006, as well as coming up on her 30th vintage (some multiple vintages due to her working in Australia and Italy back to back), explained what made Margaret River, with its fiercely cooler wind influence from the ocean, so special when it came to Cabernet Sauvignon, “You need to have cool air to have that Cabernet hang all the way to its ripening cycle and so it is a long journey for it in Margaret River. I am a believer in ocean influence - you absolutely need that breeze.” The 2016 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon had finely integrated tannins with dried herbs and fresh red currants that had a long, expressive finish.”
"If you know anything about Margaret River, it’s likely Vasse Felix. It’s Margaret River’s founding wine estate, established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr. Tom Cullity. The winemaking is run by Virginia Willcock, an absolute force and one of Australia’s most awarded winemakers. The Heytsebury comprises a selection of the property’s best fruit."
