Scorpo Estate Pinot Noir 2016
Vasse Felix is Margaret River's founding wine estate. All wines are grown in Vasse Felix’s four Margaret River vineyards with the grapes for the Filius mostly sourced from Adams Road Vineyard, in the warmer, Carbunup area of Margaret River. The Vasse Felix Cabernet Merlot is called ‘Son of’ the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot makes for a soft succulent wine
This distinctive 2017 blend from Margaret River captures the exquisite perfumes and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon, softened by generous parcels of Merlot. A hint of Malbec accentuates the best of both varieties. Vasse Felix Cabernet Merlot has a juicy, fruit-filled palate with delicate tannins and perfectly integrated French oak and pairs well with fatty morsels of red meat.

Vintage 2016 - Very good hue, although, inevitably, not deep; achieved full ripeness, no mean feat in 2011, with the aromas and flavours ground in plum fruit; the palate has very good tannin structure to support the fruit, and the wine has time to go.
