The ‘Block Series’ . 96 Points James Halliday
The Hay Shed Hill ‘Block Series’ wines are made from single parcels of fruit from designated blocks selected as the best grapes on the property. With hand crafted care in the winery, these wines represent the best wines of from one of the oldest properties in the region.
Block 6 is the oldest block of chardonnay grapes on the Hay Shed Hill vineyard and also enjoys the coolest temperatures due to its elevated positioning and afternoon shade.
The resulting wine has minerally, stone fruit aromatics with a background of savoury flinty notes from the barrel fermentation. The fruit is in the fresh white pear spectrum with perhaps some citric elements. This is a fine Chardonnay that has a depth of flavour and beautiful texture.
