Hay Shed Hill, Chardonnay vineyard has many slopes and aspect and lies only 5 miles from the Indian Ocean. The breeze from the ocean cools the vineyard giving the wines a cooler climate character. The vines are mostly grown without irrigation producing low yields of outstanding fruit.
Michael Kerrigan, the acclaimed former winemaker of Madfish and Howard Park, has been working with Bancroft Wines for 25 years. When the vineyards he coveted in Margaret River’s oldest sub-region of Willyabrup Valley came up for sale he leapt at the chance to fulfil his dream of making his own style of boutique wines and became the owner/winemaker of Hay Shed Hill Winery.
