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

Halliday Wine Companion, Erin Larkin "Hazel's vineyard was only planted in 1999 and already this smacks of pedigree. Let's start at the finish: this is a ripping wine. It has both radiant and pretty fruit on nose and palate. 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."

Houn Hooke "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) "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 " 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. Drink now. Screw cap." (2018 vintage)

Huon Hooke "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)

Robert Parker " The 2018 Hazel's Vineyard Grenache-Syrah-Mataro is 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mataro. Blessed with fabulous aromatics of roses, licorice and blueberries, it's also grippy and firm on the medium to full-bodied palate, folding in hints of espresso on the drying finish." (2018 vintage)

Organic

The Winemaker "This classic southern Rhone blend, GSM bursts with aromas of mulberry and cherry confection over notes of fragrant violets and myrtle pepper. The inclusion of a high percentage of whole clusters in this stellar vintage provides extra lift to the nose with sweetened chai spice aromas,perfectly balanced by a touch of dry herbs and savoury jamon.
The palate is initially juicy and sweet, combining crunchy red plums
and red liquorice from the Grenache, with Syrah and Mataro adding
structure, spice and savouriness. The finish is persistent with layers of
cocoa, coffee liqueur and a frame of firm but fine tannins."

This new vintage is awaiting ratings.

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.

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.

GSM is a famous blend of red wine grapes from the Cotes du Rhone region in France. It is made from Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre.
