Expert Reviews

Perhaps the Chardonnay that exhibits the most detail in the McHenry Hohnen stable.

Regional yet restrained. Smoke and pebbles as much as fruit intensity. Line, length and subtlety. Nectarines and limes, roasted hazelnuts and cashews. For all the purity and precision there is creaminess and certain layer of funk. My note is alarmingly similar to last year’s and I think the identity of this vineyard is becoming very clear. The oak is a touch prominent at the moment. Give it a decant or time in the glass if you’d like to drink it now. 93 points, Jeremy Pringle - posted 19 February 2014

A pristine palate reflects the vineyards Southern Margaret River location displaying ripe nectarine and white peach framed with fresh lemon/lime acidity. Finely textured from time spent on lees, the palate is dry and linear showing precision and poise. One for the cellar...

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.
