Expert Reviews

"Hay Shed Hill is one of the older vineyards in Margaret River having been planted in 1973. The estate-grown and single-vineyard wines from here are outstanding. But the second-tier range, under the Pitchfork label, continues to offer great-value drinking. Recent high-quality vintages mean that winemaker Michael Kerrigan has plenty of good fruit to work into this budget label. The new shiraz is a case in point. This is a brilliant wine for this price category. Loads of spicy shiraz with a distinct savoury influence working into the plummy earthy fruit. It's medium to full-bodied with a heap of palate-filling goodies. And it's great value at this price. A must-buy by the six pack or dozen when you want a solid stand-by for your local greasy spoon." Rating 91 - Ray Jordan, West Australian (SEP/2013)

"An aromatic shiraz from Margaret River winery Hay Shed Hill. The nose is an appetising mix of juicy berry scents, liquorice, peppery spice and subtle sweet oak. It is medium-bodied and long with easy tannins underneath. Ageing? Drink over three years. Food ideas: Barbequed lamb cutlets; vegetable moussaka." Click here to download presenter."

Pitchfork Range

The modern Australian food and lifestyle needs modern Australian wine. Friends and family, casual dining, good primary food ingredients presented simply so as to highlight the quality of the produce. The wine needs to complement this experience and should be clean and bright expressing the quality of the fruit not secondary influences of fermentation, oak and other processing gimmicks. The modern Australian food and lifestyle needs modern Australian wine - there is no better source of modern Australian wine than off an old Australian vineyard.
