James Suckling 94 Points
Although our commitment to Shiraz is historic – with the oldest Shiraz vines in Margaret River – the Vasse Felix Shiraz style is modern, cool climate elegance. Wild fermented in small batches, the wine’s complexity is deep and true to its unique environment. Only the highest grade vineyard sections make this fine, small volume Shiraz.
Bright, ruby garnet.
Uplifted raspberry and rose stem mingle with very spicy notes of liquorice, black pepper and cinnamon bark. Subtle hints of parsley, fennel and Thai basil enhance this complex and intensely fragrant perfume.
Vibrant, refreshing and moreish, the palate shows lifted fresh raspberry with spicy red berry coulis tang, black pepper and purple basil flavours. It finishes light and dry with a lingering perfume.
