2022 Hay Shed Hill Block 6 Chardonnay Margaret River – Hay Shed Hill is one of a small and prestigious group of pioneer vineyards that have established Margaret River’s reputation as a worldclass wine producing region. Located in the heart of the Wilyabrup Valley, the premier sub-region of Margaret River, The Hay Shed Hill Block Series wines are made from small parcels of fruit from individual blocks on the vineyard to showcase the best of Hay Shed Hill.
Planted in 1975 to Gin Gin (Mendoza) clone Chardonnay, Block 6 has a steep south-facing aspect thereby reducing the sunlight interception by the vines and creating a cool micro climate ideal for quality Chardonnay production. These dry grown vines produce tiny quantities of fruit with distinctive restrained minerally character.
Brilliant appearance, great clarity and the lightest of green hues. Mineral aromatics with background savoury flinty notes. The fruit is in the fresh white pear spectrum with perhaps some citric elements. The palate is vibrant and light. The old vine depth of fruit provides a complexity not seen in most Chardonnay – there is always more to find in the wine without it being overworked or over-blown. This is a beautiful wine with depth of flavour and texture that will stand up in a fine dining situation.
