Winery Tasting Notes
Mulberry, cassis and capsicum overtones
Mulberries, cassis and plum with some secondary chocolate tones
Hearty beef casserole, beef stroganoff, or dukkah-crusted lamb cutlets. Mature hard cheeses such as cheddar, parmesan or romano.
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 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.
