Hay Shed Hills Cabernet Sauvignon from the Margaret River is with good reason a James Halliday, "the Australian Robert Parker" 5 star wine (the highest accolade). The Margaret River in Western Australia makes wonderful Cabernet and Micheal Kerrigan is one of best winemakers in the region. The result is a delicious top notch Cabernet that by the way is also great value

Our Tasting Notes

Bordeaux watch out!
Dense dark red to black colour of great intensity. A rich bouquet led by the ripest cassis and berry fruits, opulent but brooding in its youth. Behind the primary fruits are distinctive vineyard characteristics of dark chocolate and mint. The oak is background cedar which will recede further as the fruits emerge with some bottle age.
This vineyard consistently produces intense fleshy and full mid palate Cabernet with massive fruit weight with dark cherry and blackcurrant flavours.This is a big full wine with ample flavour and concentration. Very drinkable now with a good 10 years ahead of it. Amazing!
Drink 2030.

About

When the vineyards came up for sale in Margaret River’s oldest sub-region of Willyabrup Valley, highly acclaimed winemaker, Michael Kerrigan leapt at the chance to fulfil his dream of making his own style of boutique wines and became the owner/winemaker of Hay Shed Hill Winery. Since the launch in 2006 this much lauded winemaker has worked hard, getting to know every inch of his land intimately and nurturing his old vines. He has consistently produced wonderfully pure wines that truly represent this unique terroir. Winemaking is his passion and the reception of his wines on the international arena took this modest man by surprise.
Michael’s premium wines are named after the old hay shed that has stood since the 1920’s when the estate was a dairy farm. The grapes are chosen from the best sites on his estate where attention is paid to the slightest variation of gradient so only those vines with the optimum sunshine, soils and exposure are chosen for the Hay Shed Hill label. The low yielding vines give concentration and complexity to these wines helping them reflect the cool region and vineyard. These wines are beautifully crafted and are ideal companions to food.

"Wines like this can certainly be cellared but you’re always left to wonder: why wait? Balance, flavour and texture are in such good form now that there’s no good reason to deny yourself." - 94 points, James Halliday, Wine Companion March 2016
