Vasse Felix is a notable wine producer in the Margaret River region on Australia's west coast. One of the great wine regions of the world, Margaret River enjoys a truly unique environment and climate which makes it a paradise for winemakers and wine lovers alike. The estate was established in 1967 by Dr Thomas Cullity, and the first vintage was in 1971. This was not a great success for Vasse Felix – the fruit had been attacked by birds in the weeks leading up to harvest. A falcon was employed to scare the birds away, but this also proved unsuccessful as upon release, it promptly flew away. Happily, changes in the vineyards have meant success for later vintages, and the falcon is now immortalized on Vasse Felix labels, and has become the symbol of the estate.
Bright deep maroon with a purple tint. Blackcurrant and dark cherry perfumes are complemented by savory notes of miso, mushroom, dried oregano and forest twigs. Underlying hints of custard and charry, spicy oak round out the lovely aroma. Tangy, bright black cherry fruit arrives on a pure, polished stone texture. This builds to a powdery, long, dry finish with lingering black forest cake flavors.
