The Hay Shed Hill vineyard is situated on a picturesque property that was established as a group settlement farm for returned soldiers from the First World War. Known as Sussex Vale the property was originally a dairy farm. The current homestead, considerably renovated, still has much of the original Group Settlement look and feel.
Vines were first planted in the early 1970s. In the late 1980’s the vineyard was bought by the Morrison Family and the wine brand Hay Shed Hill was established taking its name from the local reference to the hay shed located on the property. The sister label, Pitchfork, was developed to complement the single vineyard Hay Shed Hill label. A series of ownership changes saw numerous alterations to labels, wine style and distribution until the current group of partners bought back the farm and the brand in late 2006 and returned to the original concept of producing wine with integrity that expresses the quality of the site.

The Hay Shed Hill vineyard is located in the Willyabrup Valley, the premier sub-region of the Margaret River Wine region. Only 5 Km from the Indian Ocean with an elevated aspect, the vineyard thus enjoys the benefit of the ‘doctor’ the well-known sea breeze that comes off the ocean each afternoon and cools down the vineyard giving the fruit a much cooler climate character than the latitude of the vineyard might suggest. The vineyard is hilly with several aspects ranging from steep south facing slopes on which the best Chardonnay is located, to equally steep north facing slopes where the best Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys the full face of the sun. The majority of the vineyard is dry grown producing small yields of outstanding fruit.

Three Lions Great Southern Cabernet Merlot

Three Lions Great Southern Cabernet Merlot

The Plantagenet’s were the first truly armigerous royal dynasty of England meaning they were entitled to strike and bear various coats of arms. The arms of this noble, later royal, family, Gules, three lions passant guardant, termed colloquially “the arms of England” were first adopted by King Richard the Lionheart (1189–1199), son of King Henry II of England (1154–1189), son of Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou (1113/17–1151).
These Three Lions signified royalty, history, power and a code of conduct that was instantly recognized wherever they were displayed.
So too with this range of wines. They are from the oldest established winery in Great Southern – they are wines with power and provenance. The Three Lion coat of arms of Plantagenet Wines is a recognized symbol of quality and prestige.

Three Lions Great Southern Cabernet Merlot – a good tight grain French oak with juicy acidity give a fine structural thread to the black plum, brambly fruit with a slight herbal edge. Medium palate weight and good clean acid on the finish balances this wine superbly

Three Lions Great Southern Cabernet Merlot is kept in French oak for 15 months and is best paired with Roast Beef with herbed potatoes

Plantagenet Wines embodies the best of the west with its distinctive wines of finesse and elegance. As a pioneer of the Great Southern region, Plantagenet’s reputation is celebrated for its rich heritage, its expressive wines and family-owned sensibility, making it one of the most trusted wine brands in the country.
The rich tapestry of the Plantagenet story begins in 1968, when English migrant Tony Smith envisaged great things for his land in Mount Barker. With his small inheritance, he bought a farm called Bouverie in the Plantagenet Shire and literally planted the seeds of the Plantagenet future – Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes bore the fruit of what would become some of the most highly awarded and sought after wines, both nationally and internationally. The fruit was picked in 1974 and the wines showed exciting potential, enough for Smith to convert a local apple packing shed into a winery and get to work making tight and lean Shiraz with typical regional spiciness and full-bodied cabernet. Embracing the conditions of the Great Southern’s cool climate, Smith went on to plant further varieties, including Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The vineyards all benefit from their coastal proximity, enjoying abundant rainfall and cool twilight breezes from the neighbouring Southern Ocean.

Plantagenet Mount Barker Angevin Riesling

Plantagenet Mount Barker Angevin Riesling has grapes sourced exclusively from their own vineyards in Mount Barker, Western Australia. Lifted aromatics of lime zest and white flowers are met by a pure and focused palate, displaying an intense medley of citrus flavours and a crisp lingering acidity.

The Angevins were a royal house in the 12th and early 13th centuries; its monarchs were Henry II, Richard I and John. In the ten years from 1144, two successive Counts of Anjou, Geoffrey and his son, the future Henry II, won control of a vast assemblage of lands in western Europe that would retrospectively be refered to as the Angevin Empire. The Plantagenet dynasty was formed when Henry II succeeded the English throne in 1154 following the death of King Stephen.
BLEND Riesling 100%
COLOUR Pale Straw
AROMATICS AND PALATE Aromatic nose, white blossoms and a variety of citrus. Lemon zest, lemon curd, preserved lemon, ripe pink grapefruit and crisp green apple fruits balance well with acidity that is present but not obtrusive. Quartz like minerality adds drive and freshness to the perfectly judged phenollyc texture and subsequent elegance of this wine.
WINEMAKING Fruit was machine harvested at night when coolest and transferred to the winery to be immediately destemmed and crushed into the press, thus preserving freshness. The must was gently pressed to tank with a careful press cut made separating free run and pressings. The wine was settled and the clear juice racked to tank for a cool fermentation with an inoculated yeast strain. The wine was fermented to complete dryness, then rack from its lees and blended before fining, stabilisation and early bottling to preserve freshness.
CELLAR POTENTIAL This wine will cellar beautifully for 15+ years.
VINTAGE 2017 A dry Winter and mild Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development. 

Plantagenet Mount Barker Angevin Riesling – great wine from a great producer
