Food Pairings for Vasse Felix Red Bordeaux Blend Margaret River Cabernet-Merlot
Vasse Felix was the first commercial winery to be established in Margaret River, in 1967, following the agronomist Dr John Gladstones’ encouraging research into the region’s suitability. Others followed, and Margaret River now has an international reputation for fine wine, typically combining ripe Australian fruit with elegant European structure. Vasse Felix was bought by the Holmes à Court family in 1987, and they have continued to invest in its success; a new winery was completed in time for the 1999 harvest, helping Vasse Felix maintain its position among the very finest wineries in Western Australia. Long growing seasons, ancient soils and cooling sea breezes from the Southern and Indian Oceans provide the Vasse Felix vineyards with ideal viticultural conditions to craft consistent, elegant and complex wines with pronounced varietal character and aroma. Vasse Felix produces a generously structured Cabernet / Merlot blend with ripe dark fruits, fine grained tannins and extraordinary length. Careful fruit selection and astute use of oak provides balance and complexity to a wine that will reward medium term cellaring.
