 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

 

About the wine

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.

"The take-home message for me was the consistency of the quality and style of the wines and, above all else, their longevity.  They are all 15-year propositions, progressively gaining complexity and mouthfeel.  But if you want to enjoy the wine tonight, go for it." James Halliday

"A perfect example of Margaret River SBS. All the work has been done in the vineyard, the winery a hand-off zone as varietal fruit, not oak, has shaped the wine. Some grassy/pea pod aromas quickly yield to the even flow of passionfruit, pineapple and guava on the supple palate". 2016 Hay Shed Hill SBS - Rated 95 Points - Special value rosette.
