The Hay Shed Hill Vineyard Series showcase the character of the fruit grown on this classic vineyard site with distinctive and expressive wines. Old Vines Modern Wines.
The Hay Shed Hill Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a bright vibrant fresh wine full of the lively clean tropical flavours typical of this classic Margaret River blend.
Vintage - What a sweet vintage for Margaret River grape growers. Following a good winter was a mild and calm spring with generally good weather during the crucial flowering period, that is the stage at which the flowers are fertilised and begin to form individual grape berries. This stage can often be quite wild and stormy leading to significant loss of fruit. The beginning of summer was mild, almost perfect growing conditions. There was a small rain event in January which may have caused consternation had it continued but it was mercifully brief leading to several months of virtually rain free weather. Chardonnay was harvested in early February, followed by Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon later in the month and into early March. Pristine fruit with fresh flavours and good acidity. Another great vintage for Margaret River.
Winemaking - Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes from the Hay Shed Hill vineyard were used in making this wine. Only free run juice was used, this component of the juice is the highest in quality with the most intense fruit expression and the lowest in undesirable phenolic skin characters. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at low temperature without the use of oak preserved and highlighted the finer fruit characters of these aromatic varieties.
Variety - Sauvignon Blanc 58%, Semillon 42%
Alc/vol - 12.5%
'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.'
