Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts - 2018 Wine Spectator Top 100 - #58
Opens with a fresh green accent reminiscent of tomato leaf and sage, giving a savory, peppery note to the plush, velvety cassis and plum core. Finds balance between grace and power, with spice and herb elements lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2028.
91 pts James Suckling Aug 2018
Ripe summer berries with a sense of brightness and freshness. Red fruits and some leafy, herbal edge, too. The juicy and elegant palate has a gently herbal, succulent and tangy style. Drink now or hold. Screw cap.
91 pts Wine Enthusiast Aug 2018
At nearly half the price of Vasse Felix's premier-range Cab, Filius is less cellar worthy and more approachable young, but it still carries the winery's classic, restrained, mineral-driven stamp. A nose of red currant, raspberry, dark chocolate nibs and licorice is wrapped in a distinctive graphite and sea-spray character. Tart red fruit and graphite continue on the palate which is tight and focused with fine savory tannins and seemingly effortless elegance and restraint. Drink now–2025



Winemaker Notes

NOSE:
A classical savoury Cabernet perfume. Vibrant blackcurrant fruit with gravel earth, hints of venison, mushrooms and truffles mingle with a fine sage-like herbal lift. Fragrant spiced oak notes sit beautifully underneath, delivering a touch of classical cedar.
PALATE:
A light entrance leads to juicy fruit with bright acidity, with flavours of blackcurrant and woodsy native forest. Shapely as a Cabernet should be, the power starts to build with a fine tannin profile, leaving a lengthy dry, linear finish.
