Reviews and Ratings

A full-bodied, supple Australian red wine blend of 86% cabernet sauvignon and 14% Malbec grapes. This wine was aged 13 months in French oak barrels, of which 20% was new. Aromas of fleshy black plums. Pair with hearty meat dishes. MINE: Vasse Felix Filius 2015 is a medium-bodied and fresh 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Malbec red blend from he Margaret River, Western Australia. The blended wine was matured for over 1 year in French oak barrel, a portion of which was new. OTHER: Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review: This wine is all cab, with black cherry, mint, eucalyptus, crushed rock, graphite, and violets. There is some fresh tobacco and spice on the finish. 91 Points. OTHER: Winemaker Virginia Willcock adds a fair dollop (14%) of Malbec to this Cab, rounding it out and adding a further dash of spice, and she matured the wine 12 months in French oak barriques. Ripe plum, cassis, cherry, vanilla and toasty oak are underscored by stony minerality. Can't go wrong with steaks. (Vintages panel, Nov. 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
