1 x Arimia Estate Mourvedre (Organic) 2014 ~ Margaret River, Western Australia

Organic

James Halliday "A savoury, medium-bodied wine with red and black cherry fruits .."

Great Wine "The perfumed nose follows through to the palate which is fruit driven and opulent. Mourvedre is normally gnarly but Arimia have made a smoother style similar in flavour to a good Cotes Du Rhone but without the garrigue. Classy! Arimia makes the only single varietal Mourvedre’s in the region. They are championing new varietals for the region such as Zinfandel, Grenache, Shiraz Viognier, Petit Verdot and Verdelho."

Arimia is an award-winning organic vineyard, farm and wine producer located in the famous Margaret River region of Western Australia. The Arimia vineyard has been farmed organically since July 2016 and the winery practices a low intervention, organic method of winemaking. The vineyard is managed and the wines made by acclaimed winemaker and viticulturist Dan Stocker. Arimia has one of Margaret River's most welcoming cellar doors and boutique accommodation.

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.

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

James Halliday “Hand-picked and sorted, destemmed then crushed, part of the must drained off to finish fermentation in French barriques, the remainder pressed to tank, the parcels blended and matured for 18 months in French barriques (35% new). While only medium-bodied, the blackberry and plum fruit has a sprinkle of spices.”

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."

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.

94/100 James Halliday

James Halliday 5 Red Star Winery

Campbell Mattinson (Halliday) "More restrained than you might expect but it maintains a slinky smoothness and the finish sheets long. Peppercorn, black cherry and black pepper with sweet herb/mint notes and a woodsy undergrowth character. There's a ground coffee note here too but a particularly earthen version of it. Everything here suggests that this wine will develop beautifully over the medium term and beyond."

The Winemaker "A bouquet of earth, black cherries and spices with subtle mineral/s;ate quality, oak providing support. Red flowery fruits flavours dominate, with subtle slate like minerality. All framed by a light structure and fine tannis."

Erin Larkin (Halliday) "A blend of 4 clones (470, 174, 877 + Waldron) from the Riversdale vineyard. Hand-picked fruit, matured in oak for 10 months. Minimal additions. Very pretty nose, laced with red berries, star anise, szechuan peppercorn and red licorice. The palate follows suit and is silky, layered and dense! So remarkably dense. Weightless too, though ... quite a brilliant wine." (2019 Vintage)

James Halliday "Estate-grown (Riversdale Vineyard), hand-picked and sorted, matured for 10 months in French oak. This is high quality shiraz fruit handled with attention to detail. It is fragrant and juicy, long and very well balanced. Texture and structure in a medium-bodied guise, and a cornucopia of black fruits." (2018 Vintage)

Toni Paterson "Mulberry fruit and liquid dark chocolate. Gorgeous, fleshy cherry fruit on the mid-palate with an appealing earthy nuance. There is a flutter of spice running through the wine. Impressive depth" (2017 Vintage)

Larry Cherubino has had a distinguished winemaking career, first at Hardys Tintara, then Houghton, and thereafter as consultant/Flying Winemaker in Australia, NZ, South Africa, the US and Italy.

Wine Companion Winery of the Year 2022
5 Star Winery - James Halliday

James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion Awards "Deep crimson-purple; it has unexpected, but welcome, savoury tannins that give texture and structure to the blackberry/black cherry fruit. A long future for this wine."

The Winemaker "Sourced from a single block of bio-dynamically grown Syrah at Hazel’s Vineyard. After pressing, the wine was aged in a 2800L French-Oak Foudre for 9 months.The wine was bottled without fining or filtration, ensuring a living reflection of a block we consider special and unique."

Mike Bennie "This is different. It really does live up to the syrah moniker. It’s peppery, bunchy, spicy and then fruity; it’s about as different an expression of Margaret River shiraz as you will find, and yet it is fresh and it is not unripe. It pushes the boundaries for sure, but there’s nothing hard about it. It’s (very) dry. It’s savoury. It’s nutty. And it’s interesting. If you’re looking for more standard Margaret River fruit-filled fare, this won’t fit that bill. But if you like cool climate shiraz/syrah, chances are you’ll find some joy here."

Nick Stock "This has superb strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, in an exuberant and very fragrant mode with immense freshness. The palate has a smooth weave of tannin that carries the same brand of lively berries in a very approachable, seamless style. Clever wine."

Campbell Mattinson "Single vineyard, 100% whole bunch, 14 days on skins, matured in a single 2800l cask on lees, bottled unfined and unfiltered. Inherently savoury as you'd expect, with roasted nut, twig and peppery spice notes running wild through the wine. There's a good push of cherry-plum fruit, too, along with graphite and gum leaf notes. There's a perfumed sweetness to this wine despite the charge of peppers. It's a beauty." (2018 Vintage)

Erin Larkin "It seems these guys can't do any wrong at the moment. Layered, spicy, slightly reductive (in a good and engaging way), stemmy, juicy and delicious. Briney acid and red fruits. Savoury, structured and quite exciting, with the salted heirloom tomato character that so excites in shiraz/syrah." (2019 Vintage)

McHenry Hohnen was 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 focusses on crafting site-expressive wines and are known for producing some of the region's best wines.

"McHenry Hohnen is tucked away off Bussell Highway to the south of Margaret River. The wines have bound from strength, a comment never truer than under the stewardship of winemaker Jacopo (Japo). Under his leadership, the wines have been catapulted into a new realm of quality. The chardonnays particularly exemplify that hard-to-achieve balance of pleasurable on release, and capable of graceful ageing. The move towards organics and sustainable farming has had a positive impact on the quality of the wines, and it is a delight to witness so much diversity in the vineyards - from experimental clones and new plantings, to sheep, chickens, olives and vegetables. McHenry Hohnen is an estate on the move - divert your eyes at your peril - EL."

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Firm, structuring tannins pervade every aspect of the experience and the oak serves to hold it altogether in an unseen way. This is delicious and serious. Brilliant winemaking and craftsmanship. What a pleasure."

Hooke Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Very deep, dark, bright purple colour, the bouquet raw and concentrated, a trifle callow, with raw power and plenty of astringency. A massive wine that is raw, unready and very firm to finish. It demands more time. And hearty food."

Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion "Savoury to its back teeth, but well fruited and textured, not to mention lengthy. It's a nutty, buoyant, boysenberried shiraz with personality galore but with succulence and softness." (2018 vintage)

Ralph Kyte - Powell, The Real Review "Margaret River’s claim to red wine fame rests very much on its world-class cabernet sauvignons. Shiraz is a lesser light but can be very impressive too. Grenache and mataro are regional rarities, as are three-way blends of the two with shiraz, so this wine shines a light on the possibilities. It’s a very savoury drop, dramatically at odds with the voluptuous grenache-dominant styles of South Australia. It opens with lots of spice and herbal, undergrowthy scents, red berry fruit woven through. The palate is quite sinewy and structured, more about texture than ripe flavour. A tight core of fruit carries through it with a drying, grainy tannic edge behind it. A wine that should develop well in the bottle" (2018 vintage)

James Suckling "There’s a really fragrant kick here with notes of fresh, strawberry and raspberry purée and attractive, spicy lift. Medium body and a smooth, juicy palate that flows in soft, easygoing mode." (2018 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Youthful, deep red/purple colour. The aromas are fresh and primal, with raw berry and spice aromas with herbal bunchy, stemmy overtones. The wine is taut and lean, wiry and firm in the mouth, with complex bunchy perfumes on the nose, but the palate is really quite firm and needs time or hearty food. It surely has potential. " (2018 vintage)

The Winemaker "warm spring with a full water table ensured good flowering and crop set. Summer was moderate with a large rain event mid vintage ensuring wines were never stressed. Picking dates were consistent with recent averages." (2016 Vintage)

70% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 4% Mataro
