Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet Merlot 2021
‘Son of’ the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon. This regional blend incorporates more opulent fruit from each of the Vasse Felix Vineyards. Generous portions of Merlot contribute to a succulent wine with approachable tannins.
Bright, pale maroon. A subdued and refined savoury perfume with wild strawberry and raspberry pip. Notes of wood wax, wet concrete, dry woodsy forest and a hint of rhubarb compote linger in the background. Light to medium weight palate with a fresh core and delicate tannins building to a clean, dry finish. Hints of raspberry liquorice, stone and wood remain.
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 8% Malbec
