Fruit is sourced from the Rocky Road Vineyard which lies in the headwaters of the Chapman Brook, near Witchcliffe in the south of the Margaret River region. The rows are on a northerly aspect and the vines enjoy long days of sunshine, moderated by the vineyard’s southern location. The vines are cane pruned on a single bilateral cordon with a vertically trained canopy. It is a simple and practical format that maximises light penetration and maintains a balanced vine.

Expert Reviews

David Hohnen was the first winemaker to make commercial quantities of zinfandel so many years ago. This has the exotic black fruits and somewhat confronting tannins the variety can produce, but the alcohol is happily restrained. Deserves a few years for the tannins to soften. Rating 90 - Drink by 2021 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes


An intense nose of blackberry and boiled confection comes from the riper 2011 vintage. Subtle tobacco, fresh figs and fruitcake spice make this wine all the more complex.


The palate shows varietal sour cherry and raspberry with soft tannins silky and balanced with the Zinfandel acid. Mid weight with an intense bouquet and bright red fruits, this is a true varietal that over delivers.

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.
