The Hay Shed Hill Vineyards were established in the 1970s, to be eventually acquired by Madfish and Howard Park winemaker Michael Kerrigan, just before Christmas 2006. He was already familiar with the Hay Shed Hill property and its potential. Kerrigan could not pass up the opportunity to redevelop one of the region's finest sites, to make wine that's as good or better than any in Margaret River. Choice parcels of estate grown Chardonnay are treated to a chilled vinification in controlled fermenters, bottled promptly upon completion, unwooded without exposure to oak. A low temperature, protective regimen is employed throughout the process, preserving the exquisite Margaret River character.
