2015 Hay Shed Hill Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Drinking wine is part of the Australian lifestyle, it brings us closer together, allows us to form bonds and sometimes talk nonsense. Cracka are no nonsense when it comes to finding quality wines from quality vineyards like the Pitchfork range from Margaret River winery Hay Shed Hill.

Here’s a white blend that will unify the masses at your next al fresco barbecue or picnic. It’s just what you expect from a Margaret River white blend with lots of lovely upfront tropical notes and bursting with citrus and cut grass aromas. It’s fresh and firm with zippy, crunchy acids and mouth-watering length.

Winemaker's Notes

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

Nose: Typical cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon aromas of lively tropical fruits and fresh herbaceous grassy characters make up an intense bouquet

Palate: The palate is fresh and lively with classic Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon characters and a fine structure that are an indication both of the quality of the vintage and of the use of only free-run juice

Variety: Sauvignon Blanc 60% Semillon 40%

Alc/vol: 12.5%

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2016 Vintage) says
Pretty close to a perfect example of Margaret River SBS. All of the work has been done in the vineyard, the winery a hands-off zone as varietal fruit, not oak, has shaped the wine. Some grassy/pea pod aromas quickly yield to the even flow of passionfruit, pineapple and guava on the supple palate.

Fresh, crunchy and a little palate texture completes the perfect summer drink at value for money. Lots of vibrant tropical fruit with a little citrus tang driving to a long finish. Nails the fresh young drinking style to the letter.

Estate-grown, the vines fully mature. An elegant wine, the aromas and flavours largly in the snow pea, grass and citrus spectrum, the semillon an important partner (though its percentage is not specified).

Spotlessly clean; very attractive mix of grass, herb and sweet tropical/passionfruit flavours; fresh acidity to close.
