The great structural elements of fine Margaret River Cabernet are embraced with the dark fruit of Malbec to make a very Vasse Felix style. After 12 months maturation in barrique where traditional oxidative handling helps to soften and round the tannin profile, the Cabernet is blended with the ideal percentage of Malbec to create a savoury fine wine with medium weight, where big is not considered best. Luscious and juicy upfront, the dark berry fruit is complemented by savoury elements of beef stock and dried woody herbs. There is a wonderful length of flavour as the palate transitions to a fine, textural and dusty drying finish in classical Cabernet style.

Filius Fog. Distinctly regional smelling with choc-mint and bayleaf, ripe dark berries, and creamy nougat oak. It’s full of flavour, ripe fruit, ripe and dusty tannin, something of a savoury nori character, turning more to red berries on a pretty long and chalk dusted tannin finish. Hearty. Plenty to get stuck into here.
