’Son of’ the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon. It carries the structure, power and tannins of classic Cabernet in an earlier drinking, more forward style from fruit sourced from each of the Vasse Felix vineyards.

Vasse Felix was established in 1967 by pioneer Dr Thomas Cullity and is the founding wine estate of Margaret River. Vasse Felix is situated in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, with vineyards also located at northern and southern sites of the wine appellation. The first vineyard blocks were planted in August, 1967. Margaret River experiences the unique combination of a Mediterranean climate, maritime influence and perfect soils for viticulture. Together, these conditions are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The estate is recognised as one of Australia’s drawcard winery destinations and includes a Cellar Door, Restaurant and Art Gallery.

Rich dark chocolate and mocha notes add complexity to the core of wild blackberry, plum and cassis flavors in this red, with fresh minty herbal accents, a green cardamon note and velvety tannins giving this an air of elegance. Drink now through 2038. 18,000 cases made, 900 cases imported.

The youngest child in Vasse's stable of Cabs, Filius offers affordability, approachability and a glimpse of the greatness the top wines in this classic Cab region can achieve. The nose is lucid and high-toned, with red currant, floral and savory spice aromas, and graphite, gravel, and toasty oak notes. Cab's characteristically chiseled, savory tannins are in full force. There's acidity, red fruit and spice aplenty. Linear and powerful yet fresh-bring out the protein and drink now-2030.

2019 was a cool vintage in Margaret River, and in terms of quality, it produced aromatic, detailed Cabernets of poise and grace. This 2019 Filius Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception. It has powdery tannin, kelp and iodine in the mix, too, with raspberry compote, black tea and a squeeze of pomegranate.

Saturated violet. Lively, spice-accented dark fruit and floral qualities on the focused nose. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors that slowly turn sweeter through the back half. Discreet tannins form a persistent finish that leaves bitter cherry and mocha notes behind.
