Pitchfork is Hay Shed Hill's sister label and was developed to complement the single Vineyard Series Hay Shed Hill label, inspired by tools found in the old hay shed from the dairy days (a local landmark).
The wines are 100% Margaret River and designed to be enjoyed everyday, just like this crowd-pleasing, juicy and lively Cabernet Merlot.

A 70/30% blend, standard Hay Shed Hill vinification; 10 months in French oak. Bright colour; there's no question: drink this while its senior Cabernet Merlot sibling softens its tannin structure; this is joyously juicy, with a river of red fruits running along the palate, the finish bright and clear, with no tannins blocking the path. James Halliday, Rating 92, 27th July 2015
Deep red-purple colour, raspberry and crushed herb aromas, a hint of tomato leaf. It’s medium-bodied and straightforward, with bright varietal fruit and finishing with a decisive, typical cabernet grip. Remarkable value. Huon Hooke, The Real Review (MAR/2016)
Winery Tasting Notes
Bright and clear pink hues.
The wine is clean, fresh and has an inviting berry fruit nose. Aromas of vanilla bean ice-cream and fresh strawberries.
The palate is fresh and lively with rich juicy cabernet characters. Lingering fruit flavours carry through the palate which finishes with just a hint of red wine texture. The perfect wine to enjoy on a spring or summer day.
