Expert Reviews

The only single vineyard McHenry Hohnen Chardonnay that comes from a site that doesn’t lie in the southern parts of the Margaret River. It comes as no surprise that it is more brash and fuller than the other two wines.

Ripe peach, fresh pineapple, honeysuckle and ruby grapefruit all vie for your attention. The oak is nutty, toasty and spicy; eminently suited to the fruit profile I’d suggest. The sweetness goes as far as caramel chews on the mid-palate. I’m intrigued by the refreshing mineral line which gathers and arranges these elements, preventing them from sprawling on the palate and providing the core strength to create a solid base from which the inherent power can operate.

Winery Tasting Notes

30 year old vines have produced an intensely powerful example of Margaret River Chardonnay.


Multi-layered and complex the nose reveals ripe peach flesh, creamy cashew and sweet dough treats.


The palate is richly fruited and complex with textured layers of stonefruit, nutty nougat and wet stone minerality. A finely focused finish of citrus infused acidity adds controlled elegance to a compelling palate. Hard to resist...

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

McHenry Hohnen Vintners was established in 2004 and is a venture between pioneer Margaret River winemaker David Hohnen and his brother-in-law and vine-grower, Murray McHenry.

Their aim is to produce a range of wines which truly reflect their site and varietal origins with all the grapes for the venture sourced from family owned vineyards in the southern part of the region.

McHenry Hohnen vineyards are cared for according to the time honoured principle of common sense. Through recognising the importance of soil biology, healthy vines are grown, which in turn, produce grapes to create wines which are expressive of their particular site. The approach to winemaking is simple – close observation, careful nurturing, with minimal intervention. The resulting wines show outstanding varietal and vineyard integrity, with balance, harmony and great character.

The wines produced by McHenry Hohnen reflect Margaret River's strong suit with Chardonnay and Bordeaux varieties, along with a focus on alternative varieties which are performing very well in the region's Mediterranean climate – Zinfandel, Roussanne, Marsanne, Mataro and Grenache.

Winemaking is handled by Trent Carroll, with mentoring and support from David Hohnen.
