Growing Conditions

Mild weather conditions prevailed throughout the growing season with good
rainfalls and no wind or hail damage. While the summer was warm, overall Margaret River experienced a moderate and consistent summer producing a trifecta of
outstanding vintages.


Picked at optimum ripeness from ‘The Scholar’ vineyard, the fruit is then de-
stemmed 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, in creasing texture and producing an unmistakable Margaret River cabernet character.

Food Pairing

Hearty beef casserole, beef stroganoff, or dukkah-crusted lamb cutlets.
