1 x McHenry Hohnen Rocky Road Semilion Sauvignon Blanc (Organic) 2020 ~ Margaret River, Western Australia

94/100 Nick Butler, The Real Review

5 Stars, McHenry Hohen Vintners
5 Star Winery - James Halliday
Commended, International Wine Challenge (2009 vintage)
Bronze, International Wine Challenge (2008 vintage)
Bronze, Decanter World Wine Awards (2008 vintage)

Nick Butler, The Real Review "Serious value here. It's grass and cured lemons, lemon curd and dried green herbs, an arm-wrestle of a wine. Ripe and open when sipped, grippy and challenging with time to reflect."

Founded by one of the pioneers of the Margaret River winemaking region, David Hohnen, and his brother in law, Murray McHenry, an accomplished fine wine retailer. Both have been making wine in Margaret River since the early 1970’s. McHenry Hohnen vineyards are 100% biodynamic. Their three unique vineyards (Burnside, Calgardup and Hazel’s) produce wines that are a reflection of the land. McHenry Hohnen focus on crafting site expressive wines and are known for producing some of the region's best wines.

Margaret River is one of the best known wine regions in Australia, recognized internationally for the quality of its wines and the natural beauty of the region. Although originally renowned for its unusually refined cabernet sauvignon and intensely citrusy chardonnay varieties, the region now produces high quality Semillon-Sauvignon blends and Shiraz.

Located in the south-western corner of Western Australia, it is famous for having a more 'European' wine style than its counterparts across Australia, owing to the regions temperate, coastal location which is very similar to that of Bordeaux.

Sauvignon Blanc – Semillon is a classic white wine blend. It is most widely produced in France (most notably Bordeaux's Graves district), where both Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are well-established varieties, and has more recently caught on in Australia (particularly Margaret River). The versatile blend is typically made into crisp, dry wines, but it is also the blend of choice for the world's most prestigious sweet wine style, Sauternes. The blend is endowed with vibrant acidity and grassy aromas by Sauvignon Blanc, and its structure and mouthfeel from Semillon.

“Best Value Wine” – Western Australian Wine Guide

‘SMALL PRODUCER OF THE YEAR’ ~ The West Australian Wine Guide 2010

‘SMALL PRODUCER OF THE YEAR’ ~ The West Australian Wine Guide 2009

Erin Larkin, The Wine Companion "Matured for 15 months in French oak. A very reductive nose initially, the black fruits that lie in wait on the palate are sprinkled liberally with cracked black pepper. Bouncy and short, but uncomplicated fresh short-term drinking, here."

The Winemaker "An exotic bouquet showing lovely red berry fruits intermingled with incense, cedary oak and chocolate. Delicious black cherry flavours dominate the palate which is softly structured with fine tannins. "

Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Companion "It smells ripe, sweet and berried, the palate then following on faithfully, with rich plum and blackberry flavours pressing gently into raisin territory. There's a musky/vanillin character from oak and a firm finish; it has the throttle well and truly open but it negotiates the road well." (2016 Vintage)

Ray Jordan "...Excellent... Beautifully scented bouquet of rose petal and cherry plum with a spicy lift. The palate is seamlessly constructed with fine grainy tannins and neatly weighted oak. Medium-bodied fruit with excellent depth and concentration. So well balanced and posed with good medium-term cellaring potential."(2015 Vintage)

The Western Australian Wine Guide 2018 "Brown Hill Estate is small family-run southern Margaret River producer has gone from strength to strength with a range of exceptional quality and value-for-money wines. The vines are all dry grown and on quite harsh gravelly soils, resulting in small yields. All grapes are hand-picked. The reds are put into a high percentage of new American and French oak. Great value and super wines." (2015 Vintage)

Brown Hill Estate is a family run, multi-award winning Margaret River winery focussed on single vineyards. It utilizes traditional methods of handpicking and hand sorting to get the best quality from its grapes, and French coopered barrels in production.

Margaret River is one of the best-known wine regions in Australia, recognized internationally for the quality of its wines and the natural beauty of the region. Although originally renowned for its unusually refined Cabernet Sauvignon and intensely citrusy chardonnay varieties, the region now produces Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends and Shiraz.

Located in the south-western corner of Western Australia, it is famous for having a more 'European' wine style than its counterparts across Australia, owing to the regions temperate, coastal location which is very similar to that of Bordeaux.

Shiraz is the name given to the dark-skinned Syrah grape when grown in Australia and selected pockets of the New World. Though genetically identical, the stylistic differences between Shiraz and Syrah are usually pronounced.

Shiraz is so important to Australian viticulture that it is the most planted grape variety in the majority of Australian vineyards and has become virtually synonymous with the country's wine regions, and in particular the Barossa Valley.

Sam Kim, WineOrbit "The wine is gorgeously expressed and elegantly lifted on the nose showing blackcurrant, dark plum, cigar and toasted almond characters. It is superbly weighted and concentrated on the palate, delivering excellent depth and intensity, backed by fine texture and firm, chalky tannins. Sturdy and lingering."

Campbell Mattinson "This is such a sure-footed red. It’s alive with blackcurrant, boysenberry, mint and dark chocolate flavour and it has a firm neatness to its finish. It’s perfectly well ripened and immaculate in all respects.”

Nick Butler, The Real Review “...A wine that wrestles with itself, which makes it compelling and challenging...Opaquely purple colour. Cedary oak driving aromas here - fruits of the forest lurking with intent. Just ripe and then, just not.”

Winestate Magazine "Glenlofty’s vineyards have been carefully nurtured since 1995 in the cool-climate foothills of Victoria’s Pyrenees. Formerly blended into premium wines produced by Penfolds, Seppelts, Rosemount and Brown Bros, Glenlofty’s remarkable fruit has been bottled under its own Glenlofty Wines label only since 2013. Early industry applause has been rapid, as demonstrated by its awards."

The award winning Australian winery Glenlofty has vineyards located 340 metres above sea level in the heart of one of Australia's most famous cool climate wine growing regions, the Victorian Pyrenees. Here the climate, ancient granitic soil types and varying slopes mirror those of France’s northern Rhône region.

Until 2010 Glenlofty sent their cool-climate premium fruit for blending into high-end wines under Seppelts and Penfolds labels. In 2010 the 140 ha vineyards were acquired by the pioneering Richmond-Smith family, well-known in Australian agriculture since 1839. The first wines released under the Glenlofty brand appeared in 2013, and were an immediate success, winning gold medals across the world.

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every winegrowing country in the world. It is now the key grape variety in many first-rate New World wine regions, most notably Napa Valley, Coonawarra and Maipo Valley. Wherever they come from, Cabernet Sauvignon wines always seem to demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, good tannin structure, moderate acidity and aromas of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spices and cedarwood.
