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. COLOUR: Brilliant appearance, great clarity and the lightest of green hues. NOSE: Mineral aromatics with background savoury flinty notes. The fruit is in the fresh white pear spectrum with perhaps some citric elements. PALATE: 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.

Cabernet Franc is an integral component of many of the world’s great red wines but not a variety often seen on its own. Cabernet Franc is an indivisible part of great Cabernet blends with several attributes that neither Cabernet Sauvignon nor Merlot can provide - great aromatic intensity of berry fruits, greater early intensity and, in special cases, tannin complexity. Hay Shed Hill has been renowned for its straight varietal Cabernet Franc for more than a decade. The climate, soil, aspect and individual eccentricities of the vineyard have consistently produced Cab Franc of a quality not equalled in my 20 years of making wine in Western Australia - winemaker Michael Kerrigan.
Block 1 consists of some of the oldest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Margaret River.
