2012 Scholz Single Vineyard Shiraz
A true Barossa Shiraz and an outstanding vintage. Grown in the red earth of northern Barossa, this wine has all the body, tannin and fruit that is synonymous with the region.
September was cool and cloudy which led to slow budburst and shoot growth. Dry, warmer condi-tions in October allowed the vines to catch up after their slow start. Overall below average crops were evident by December, but this proved to be a vintage of quality over quantity. January and February continued the trend of below average temperatures, yet vintage commenced two weeks earlier than normal. The pace of the 2012 vintage was unusually calm due to the steady pace of ripening, and over-all lower tonnages of fruit.
