Vasse Felix Tom Cullity Cab Sauv, Malbec 2017

Such amazing energy with transparency of vineyard
environment emanating via savoury hints of native forest,
red gravel and ocean spray, leaning to nori and a touch of
mushroom. The fruit is vibrant, outstanding even; reminiscent
of fresh boysenberries. Turkish Delight and potpourri bring
fragrant beauty, while more excitement lies in spice notes of
red peppercorn, Bay tree seeds and very subtle liquorice.

Vasse Felix Tom Cullity Cab Sauv, Malbec 2017

Vasse Felix, Margaret River’s founding wine estate, was established by Dr Thomas Brendan Cullity in 1967. Among his first plantings were Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec vines, from which he produced the estate’s first red wine. The Tom Cullity descends from these original vines and represents the purest expression of our history, place and vintage; the pinnacle of Vasse Felix. 

Very bright garnet with a purple/black tint.

PALATE
So elegant and succulent, yet with powerful structure and
length. The immense, levitating body feels rich, but light - it’s
miraculous. The tannins are fine, present, peripheral and
incredibly long, with perfume so deep it lingers on and on.
Our dream Cabernet Sauvignon vintage for weight, flavour
preservation and balance.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS
What a stunning vintage. The vines loved what the season
delivered, and our role was help translate their experience
to the bottle, via 18 months in our best vessels, with much
devotion and care. The small sections of Tom’s old blocks
were hand-harvested and destemmed only, without
crushing, and then fermented with their natural yeast. The
Cabernet parcels were static fermented, gently pumped
over through a splash tub, and then left on skins for up
to 33 days to stabilise and make structurally sound in an
exceptional ripening year with quality tannins. The Petit
Verdot, Malbec and some Cabernet Sauvignon were open
fermented, hand-plunged and pressed dry. All basket
pressed only to fine French oak and matured for 18 months
