About this Wine

Tasting Notes

Single Vineyard wines epitomise the ultimate varietal expression of grapes grown on and selected from the most suitable rows of our family owned, mature and proven cool climate Western Australian vineyards. These wines are released only in years when we believe that this has been achieved.

The Scholar Vineyard, Margaret River, Western Australia
Varietal/Vineyards: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Harvested: April 2008
Alc/Vol: 14.5%
Closure: Stelvin Lux+
Optimal Drinking: While delicious to drink young for its primary fruit characters, this wine will gain in complexity with cellaring for up to 20 years.

Season: Mild weather conditions prevailed throughout the growing season with good rainfalls and no wind or hail damage. Moist cool weather over spring promoted vigour in the vineyard with little disease pressure. With only four hours of heat above 33C during summer and superb growing conditions, 2008 makes up a trifecta of outstanding vintages in Margaret River. A tip top year

Perfect Accompaniments
