Hay Shed Hill Pitchfork Margaret River Cabernet Merlot

It’s a tough call to find authentic Margaret River cabernet as well assembled as this under $20. No corners have been cut here, matured in small, mostly mature French oak barrels, not in tanks with staves or chips. The focus rightly remains of lovely fragrant, deep and well-defined fruit reminiscent of violets, blackcurrants and tomatoes. Finely structured tannins support a tangy berry fruits finish. $15 at Discount Wines, No Frills Wine and Our Cellar.
