Stuart Knox, The Real Review "Medium and bright ruby-red colour. Raspberries, broken slate and black peppercorns on the nose. A light to medium-bodied shiraz. It glides lightly across the tongue with red fruits and slate-like minerality. Acidity gives lift and brightness, and a fine tannic structure adds length. Very much a 'syrah' " (2017 Vintage)
James Halliday "There's a welter of dark fruits in this wine, and an equally handsome amount of tannins and oak. Wild, sweet blackberry flavours run through to the finish"(2016 Vintage)
Ned Goodwin "A gorgeous magenta sheen, this kicks off with a parade of blue to dark fruits whipped along by a skein of peppery acidity, spindly tannins, and a reductive terseness. This combination is slathered with black olive tapenade" (2016 Vintage)
Tanners Wine Merchants "Rich aromas of currant muffin, plum, briar berry and smoked ham-hock lead to a lush and rich palate. This is all tied together with firm but assertive tannins and gentle acid" (2016 Vintage)
Latour Agencies "On the nose, this wine shows fresh blueberries with strawberries and cream confection giving way to cherry cola and white pepper notes. The palate brings ripe blueberries, Satsuma plums, and red berry sweets together. These fruit flavours are complemented by underlying milk chocolate, fresh vanilla pods, and sweet spices." (2016 Vintage)
Francis Fine Wines "Medium bodied with gentle, ripe tannins and a round finish. The fruit is rich and earthy with rounded plum and bramble fruit supported by farmyard characters and herbal hints." (2016 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 1970s. 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.
