Vasse Felix’s Heytesbury regularly ranks alongside Moss Wood & Cullen’s Diana Madeline as one of the Southern Hemisphere's most distinguished Cabernets and is a wine which, relatively speaking, remains the best buy of the high end Margaret River pack. The 2011 is blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot and 12% Malbec which was matured for 18 months in French oak 61% of which was new and the balance 1-3 year old.
‘A Magnificent polished and refined Heytesbury that’s all class and elegance.’
Totally opaque black crimson colour with a deep dark crimson black tinged hue. Perfumed and alluring the nose presents lifted opening aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry interlaced with some cedary tobacco like characters which are underpinned by bay leaf and spice. A superb and very classy sniff. Medium to full bodied the palate perfectly counterpoints richness against a refined aristocratic structure and mouth feel. Exquisite flavours of ripe blackcurrant, mulberry, cedar, tobacco, subtle bay leaf and spice grace the palate. Very fine grained seamlessly integrated tannins. Outstanding length with a very long elegant blackcurrant, mulberry, cedary tobacco and spice aftertaste.
Cellar 8-10 years (2022-2034).
A blend of cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot and malbec, cabernet sauvignon having the lion's share; spends 18 months in French oak (around 60% new). It purrs like an idling V8 engine in a very expensive car, with ripe cassis, blackberry, mulberry and cedar aromas and flavours, tannins hiding until the accelerator is flattened. No one can doubt the quality or the longevity of this iconic wine. Drink by 2041.
