97/100 - Top Cabernet Sauvignon Halliday Wine Companion Awards 2023 (2019 vintage)

5 Star Winery - James Halliday

“Halliday Wine Companion - Australian Winery of the Year 2022 & 2023 - Shortlisted. Ranked Top 8”.

Made from Biodynamic Grapes 

Wine Companion Winery of the Year 2022

Halliday Wine Companion Awards, Ned Goodwin MW " This is sumptuous Margaret River cabernet, displaying all the regional virtues: cassis, black plum, pastille, dried sage and a firm tea tannin spine. Yet it is the generosity of fruit that is the wine's calling card. Pillars of French oak (14 months; 20% new) keep this wine postured and proudly youthful, yet the wine's poise and extract bode very well for maturity when it all loosens up."

Halliday Wine Companion Awards 2023, Erin Larkin "In recent blind tastings, the McHenry Hohnen Hazel's Vineyard Chardonnay and Cabernet have both come in the top 5 on my page, among eye-watering company: Château Lafite, Château Léoville Poyferré, Chevalier-Montrachet, Les Genevrières and others. The price, when you consider the ability to stand up alongside these wines is equal to but a penny, tuppence... graphite, cassis, mulberry, briny acidity and layers of exotic spice. This is a lush superstar wine, and let me tell you: if McHenry Hohnen isn't on your radar in Margaret River, you aren't doing it right." (2019 vintage)

Decanter World Wine Awards  - "A massive wine, opening with saddle-leather, liquorice and mint aromas. The intense palate explodes with a fantastic cassis bomb, ably refreshed by mouthwatering acidity and bolstered by gorgeous tannins. Very complete, and very good quality."

Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide "Immensely powerful and concentrated cabernet from this excellent vineyard. It works a slightly minerally and leafy edge into the intense blackcurrant and slightly black olive nuances on the nose. On the palate, it delivers in spades with such power that holds its lines to a very long finish. Grainy but ripe tannins and beautiful oak work in harmony."

Gourmet Traveller Wines - "A full bodied cabernet, scented with vanilla and chocolate as well as dark berries. The palate is very generous and mouth-filling, the tannins soft and fine-grained and all lingers long."

Huon Hooke "It's big and brawny with rustic tannins and a chewy texture. Very ripe fruit is apparent. The finish is chewy and grippy. It certainly has character."

James Halliday "Estate grown in the coolest, southern part of Margaret River, the stone fermenter has 15% whole bunch inclusion, with partial wild yeast, five weeks on skins. Matured in old, inert oak, interlocking cassis/blackcurrant fruit, black olive and earthy tannins drawing out the finish. 14.5% alc; screwcap. 96 points; drink to 2042."

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 regions 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."

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.
