Hay Shed Hill was planted way back in the 1970s to the varietal grapes which have put Margaret River on the map, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. The mesoclimes which rejuvenate the vines at Hay Shed Hil in Willyabrup are generally excellent with generally favourable temperatures and ample sunshine, simply superb grape growing conditions. Sauvignon Blanc typically displays lovely tropical aromatics, the Semillon grapes are endowed with sweetly scented grassy, fresh fruit characters. Pitchfork is completely unwooded and bottled promptly after vinification. A low temperature, protective regime is adopted throughout the process, preserving the finer fruit characters of the crisp and aromatic varietals.
