Cracka Review

As you know, we pride ourselves on finding wines from regions all over Australia from labels you might never have heard of. This range comes from Hay Shed Hill a winery that’s run by winemakers and grape-growers so the emphasis is more about the fruit than the marketing spin You’ll be grabbing your pitchforks and causing a mutiny if you miss out on this essential taste of Margaret River Chardonnay. It’s driven by stone fruit and grapefruit and has a healthy dose of oak but it over delivers on flavour and price.

Winemaker's Notes

Brilliant appearance, pale straw with green hues. Fermentation in stainless steel tank allows the full expression of Chardonnay fruit aroma without the influence of oak or lees resulting in a bright, clean tropical fruit bouquet. The palate is rich with tropical fruits, clean zippy acidity balances the sweet fruit character resulting in a bright fresh flavoursome palate. When good quality Chardonnay is used unwooded Chardonnay takes on a whole new level of depth and intensity.

Alc/vol: 12.5%

Shows what can be achieved with unoaked chardonnay where the quality of the grapes is not in doubt; here a bright display of white peach and a twist of grapefruit does the job.

A straight up and down the line, unoaked style; honeydew melon and nectarine fruit, with ample acidity.

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
Hay Shed Hill's junior label shows fine peach and melon aromas, some attractive, delicate fragrance and handy lift; it's a simple wine with direct fruity appeal. Soft and fluffy palate, really easy stone fruit flavours and a drop of sherbet-like acidity to hold the freshness.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; light- to medium-bodied stone fruit and citrus with some creamy nuances; fine structure, good length.
