Description

Founded by one of the pioneers of the Margaret River winemaking region, David Hohnen and his brother in law, Murray McHenry, an accomplished fine wine retailer. Both have been making wine in Margaret River since the early 1970’s. McHenry Hohnen vineyards are 100% biodynamic. Their three unique vineyards (Burnside, Calgardup and Hazel’s) produce wines that are a reflection of the land. McHenry Hohnen focusses on crafting site-expressive wines and are known for producing some of the region’s best wines.

Margaret River is one of the best-known wine regions in Australia, recognised internationally for the quality of its wines and the natural beauty of the region.

Located in the south-western corner of Western Australia, it is famous for having a more ‘European’ wine style than its counterparts across Australia, owing to the regions temperate, coastal location which is very similar to that of Bordeaux.

A seductive nose of red cherry, cocoa beans and freshly picked blueberries, with wild lavender lingering in the background. The palate is powerful with silky tannins. Ripe boysenberry and blackcurrant dominate from start to finish. Subtle oak and floral aromas provide the perfect accompaniment.

Grape Varieties: Malbec (49%). Cabernet Sauvignon (36%) and Petit Verdot (15%)
