Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Merlot 2013
The Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Merlot highlights the strength of Margaret River in producing medium-bodied, flavoursome and elegant Cabernet blends. Ripe berry fruits and textural tannins showcase this classic wine style.
In what was a carbon copy of the 2012 vintage the summer of 2013 started off uncommonly warm to hot throughout January and early February but with a significant cooling influence experienced towards the latter part of February and extending throughout March and early April allowing the majority of the grape varieties to take full advantage of sunny but not overly hot conditions.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from the Hay Shed Hill vineyard were harvested and de-stemmed into open topped vessels for fermentation on skins with traditional pump-over cap management to aid colour and flavour extraction. The wine was matured in French oak barrels for 13 months allowing integration of fine oak and development of the soft ripe tannin.
