5 Star Winery - James Halliday

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

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

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 1970s. 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.

"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 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.

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.
