Overview

Hay Shed Hill is one of a small and prestigious group of pioneer vineyards that have established Margaret River’s reputation as a world-class wine producing region. Located in the heart of the Willyabrup Valley, the premier sub-region of Margaret River, The Hay Shed Hill Block Series wines are made from small parcels of fruit from individual blocks on the vineyard to showcase the best of Hay Shed Hill.

BLOCK 2 on the Hay Shed Hill vineyard was planted in 1975 to the Houghton clone of Cabernet Sauvignon. These old dry grown vines have sunk deep roots into the gravelly loam soil profile providing the nutrient basis they need. Block 2 has a steep northern facing aspect maximizing the sunlight interception by the vines providing ideal ripening conditions.

Expert Reviews

Rating 96 - James Halliday Published 01 August 2018

Lays it all out there from the first sip - a wine of uncompromising power and style, owing as much to the viticulturist as the winemaker (if there are indeed two). It does, however, do something unusual, with juicy cassis fruit becoming more obvious on continued retastings, tannins less so - normally it's vice versa.

Winery Tasting Notes

COLOUR: Dense dark red to black colour of great intensity.

TASTING NOTES: Ripe berry aromas of great intensity with underlying dusty and earthy characters. There is depth to the nose indicating there are reserves of complex aromas yet to develop. The palate is substantial with intense and fully ripe, fleshy sweet fruit filling the mid palate with great palate extension driven by the ripe and mature tannin. The mouthfeel is robust but the tannins are smooth.

CELLARING: This is a strong wine with ripe tannin and strong fruit depth indicating it will benefit from careful cellaring. The expectation is that the wine would benefit from 10 years maturation.
