Cracka Review

The Hay Shed Hill brand is synomonous with premium Margaret River wine and this Margaret River Chardonnay pushes all the right buttons. Forget what you know about blousy and fat Chardonnays of yesteryear, this is all about restraint and shows how far Chardonnay has progressed. You’ll find aromas of pear,melon and citrus and just the slightest whiff of subtle oak before a fresh palate that ends with lively acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: The wine displays fresh green tinges on a pale straw colour

Nose: The nose exhibits aromas of fresh cut pear and honey dew melon with some zesty citric notes. There are no overt woody or buttery aromas with the primary fruit characters expressed with clarity and definition

Palate: The palate is fresh and lively with clean crisp acidity complementing the vibrant fruity flavours. The palate has very good extension and ends clean and bright. This is a restrained style of Australian Chardonnay and highlights how far we have come with this style of wine over the last decade.

Alc/vol: 14%

2015 Hay Shed Hill Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Pale, bright green-straw; a precisely made Chardonnay, with attention to detail from the decision to pick through to the aftertaste of the wine in the glass. It has great purity, the fruit sucking saliva from the mouth on the long finish.

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
This is a bright and fruit-driven, youthful chardonnay that delivers lovely, bright stone fruits and citrus; smells ripe and fresh. The palate s supple and even, gently creamy and packing an impressively fleshy core of concentrated stone fruit flavour, and gentle oak toast to close.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; free-run juice from estate-grown grapes gives the wine a head start before fermentation in French barriques followed by 11 months' maturation in those barrels. The wine has elegance and finesse, with a zesty grapefruit and pear finish.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Notwithstanding the same modest alcohol as Pitchfork, has much greater intensity of flavour and also length; while barrel fermented in French oak (11 months' maturation), fruit, rather than oak, drives the wine

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
A good example of Margaret River style; nectarine, melon and grapefruit encased in gentry creamy/nutty notes; lingering acidity and subtle oak.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Bright yellow-green; an elegant and intense bouquet with stone fruit and subtle oak is followed by a fine, satin-smooth, silky palate with stone fruit, cashew and subtle oak interwoven. Gold medal 2002 Qantas Wine Show of Western Australia.
