Margaret River, Western Australia
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.
The wine has a dense blood red with a dark centre. The wine displays ripe berry aromas of great intensity with underlying dusty and earthy characters typical of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.
There is depth to the nose indicating there are reserves of complex aromas yet to develop and be exhibited in the wine.
The palate is substantial – this is a big wine by Western Australian standards with intense and fully ripe, fleshy sweet fruit filling the mid palate with great palate extension driven by the ripe and mature tannin. Just sensational.
