5 Stars Winery - James Halliday

"Halliday Wine Companion - Australian Winery of the Year 2022 & 2023"

James Halliday "The tannins need to soften a little more, or a large chunk of flame-grilled beef should accompany the wine. Has potential."

Houn Hooke "Deep, dark red colour with a trace of purple remainining. The bouquet is char-oaky and savoury with some soy sauce and tapenade notes, the blackberry/blackcurrant fruit came up after prolonged airing. The palate is medium to full-bodied and sinewy, with a certain leanness and a degree of elegance. There's a good whack of firm tannin which lingers at the end."

Halliday Wine Companion Awards 2023, Erin Larkin "We are coming to the end of the premium 2018 releases from Margaret River, so it is a thrill to be able to taste a few more before the tranche is exhausted. This is closed, restrained and cooling, with layers of graphite tannins and salty mineral acidity ... the fruit is supple and elegant, defined wholly by blackberries, mulberries and raspberry coulis. This has eons left in the tank. It would be impatient of you to drink it earlier than 2025 (we would forgive you if you did though, because it is already delicious)."

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". (2014 vintage)

Campbell Mattinson "Cabernet from the southern end of the famed Margaret River region. A strong, structured cabernet with both length and elegance in its armoury. The flavours here are beautiful. Blackcurrant, mint, milk chocolate and fresh herbs. Perhaps even flashes of lead pencil and cedarwood. Alcohol seems just fractionally prominent but in all other respects this is pretty terrific." (2014 vintage)

Houn Hooke "Some development shows in this wine, with briary, earthy and 'crushed ant' savoury complexities, and some floral and red fruit characters peeping through. 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." (2014 vintage)

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." (2014 Vintage)

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." (2014 vintage)

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.

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.
