Season: 2012 saw the vintage too cool to produce our Single Vineyard “Scholar” Cabernet Sauvignon, thus the premium parcels of fruit went into this blend, increasing its value. A cooler moderate summer allowed slow ripening conditions while retaining high natural acidity. Flavour development was good with a natural acid balance. The season finished slightly cooler, resulting in clean, crisp and elegant wines.

Vinification: Picked at optimum ripeness from ‘The Scholar’ vineyard, the fruit is then destemmed but not crushed. Cold macerated with a moderate ferment, yeasts are
introduced to increase aromatics and texture. Following fermentation and extended maceration, the wine has been matured in new and old French oak barriques, increasing texture and producing an unmistakable Margaret River cabernet character.
