Overview

The red amigos are sourced separately from three of the McHenry Hohnen vineyards - shiraz from Rocky Road, grenache from McLeod Creek and mataro from McHenry’s. Rocky Road and McLeod Creek lie south of Margaret River near Witchcliffe. McHenry’s sits in the centre of the region, overlooking the Margaret River. The three sites share similar soils - tough laterite gravels derived from granite. These free draining, moderately fertile soils restrain the growth habit of these normally vigorous varieties and promote concentration of flavour in small crops of fully ripe grapes.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

A hedonistic blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro that reveals ripe red confection with red strap licorice over more complex notes of dark chocolate, black pepper and fresh tobacco.

Palate

A supple entry leads to juicy red fruits and Jaffa confection framed by licorice and ground sweet spices. Beautifully balanced with fine grained tannins the blood orange acidity carries a long and velvety finish.

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.
