Overview

Murray McHenry developed 40ha of vines on a farm south of Witchcliffe which he purchased in 1998. The vines are planted on a north facing slope of ironstone gravels on a tributary of the Upper Chapman Brook. This northern exposure, with some southerly cooling influences, makes a great site.

Of note are the Bordeaux varieties, which form the major parcel of fruit allocated to McHenry Hohnen's super premium 'Rolling Stone' blend. Also exceptional is the Chardonnay from this site.

Rocky Road has become home for the Vintners, with a stunning state of the art winery built overlooking the northern slopes of the vineyard.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Lifted aromas of blackcurrant, Japanese plums and mint leaf confection are tempered with savoury black olive and sweet mocha notes.

Palate

A supple entry reveals cassis and sugared plums with nuances of cola and sweet black tea. Line and length are formed by a framework of silky tannins and balancing acidity. A purist's Cabernet; unfined and unfiltered, this is raw as a handful of fruit from the vine

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.
