94 Points- James Halliday
"28yo vines, hand-picked and sorted, cold soak, open-fermented with cultured yeast, 18 days on skins, matured in French barriques (20% new) for 12 months. Retains youthful crimson-purple; a high quality medium to full-bodied malbec full of plum and black fruits, the texture complex and satisfying, the tannins perfectly balanced and integrated". Halliday's Wine Companion
The Hay Shed Hill White Label wines highlight less well-known varieties in Australia, varieties from the old world finding a new expression of character. Famous as one of the traditional Bordeaux red grape varieties, Malbec is grown all over the world especially Argentina and now increasingly in Australia. Valued for its amazing depth of colour, generosity of fruit expression and fullness of flavour, Malbec has found the growing conditions of Margaret River ideally suited to producing full bodied wines of great depth and character - unsurprising considering the similar climatic conditions experienced by Bordeaux and Margaret River.
The palate is rich, layered and textured - really fills the mouth with its immense power and weight, but retains its finesse with long, soft integrated tannins. This wine will cellar and improve for 8 - 10 years, but equally appeals as an immediate drink.
