1 x McHenry Hohnen Calgardup Brook Sauvignon Blanc (Organic) 2021 ~ Margaret River, Western Australia

95/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review
94/100 Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion
92/100 James Suckling

5 Star Winery - James Halliday

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

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Light straw-yellow hue, with a gently herbal, nutty barrel-ferment and spicy sauvignon blanc fruit bouquet, showing more varietal character on palate than nose. It's intense and bright, lively and full of character, much more than simple varietal fruit, although it is recognisable as sauvignon blanc. An excellent attempt at a white Bordeaux style."

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "...More volume and density of flavour than the Burnside (neither here nor there qualitatively, simply an observation), this is sensational. Utterly."

James Suckling "This has aromas of grapefruit, lime zest, green apples and fennel. Crunchy and bright with a medium body, clear and transparent fruit and mineral undertones."

Saint Wine "Now under the sole stewardship of Murray McHenry the drive has intensified to create wines that are supported by a complex and diversified environment, a natural interdependence that creates specificity that cannot be replicated. A focus on single vineyard wines crafted by head winemaker Japo Dalli Cani delivers a heightened experience to the consumer expression of regionality and purity that underpins the McHenry Hohnen ethos."

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.

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.

Organic

Gary Walsh "Lime, pear, some white flowers, ginger, cinnamon, and Parmesan rind, a little struck match. It has crunch and energy, pear skin and apple, a saline edge, fine chalky/dusty texture, cinnamon bark, a slight lemon rind and quinine bitterness, fresh crunch of green pear and grapefruit, and a perky kind of sappy and preserved lemon finish of good length and freshness. For a warm to hot climate wine, it certainly has some mojo, not least an individual personality. Saline and samphire thing happening too. It’s very good."

Mike Bennie, Gourmet Traveller Wine "Corymbia is one of the most exciting wine projects to emerge from Western Australia in a decade. The wines under the Corymbia label have been outstanding."

Erin Larkin “Delicate, as usual, with a flood of green apple, white flowers, Turkish apricots, cheesecloth and beeswax. This has Australian bush, and wide open summer air, and saltbush, too. The phenolics have a bitter little kick in them through the finish ... but that's ok, I was waiting for it. The waxy, lanolin character is exactly en pointe for the variety.” (2021 vintage)

Erin Larkin "...Warm, low yielding and with plenty of structure and power. That shows in the intensity of white summer apricot, green apple skin, lanolin and crushed cashew that spools out over the very long, neat finish. Saline acid laces all of these characters together. Another brilliant release." (2020 vintage)

Nick Stock "Lemon and sliced apple aromas, some gentle pastry and an overall purity and freshness. The fruit has been coaxed into a smoothly fleshy style on the palate with a bright apple, pear and lemon-flavoured finish. The Corymbia Rocket's Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2020 is beautifully balanced." (2020 vintage)

Gary Walsh "Preserved lemon, lemon barley, pear and spice. Tight, juicy, pear skin and lemon peel, bright acidity, powdery with a talc-like perfume, saline and fresh, with a dusty chalky finish of fine length. Hot climate wine, from a hot vintage, laying it on cool. Excellent. So excellent. This is a banger. " (2020 vintage)

Huon Hooke "Light yellow hue, with a smoky sulfide bouquet, the palate lean and restrained, delicate and tense, with a properly dry finish augmented by a slight grip. Lemony flavour and acidity lingers. It would be better with a buttery fish fillet." (2019 vintage)

Ray Jordan "This is bloody marvellous Chenin Blanc. It was made by Rob and Genevieve Mann from fruit grown on Tony Mann’s property. Sure, it was a very good year, but it has been handled deftly to capture all those essential goodies from a variety that sings from the Swan. Controlled tropical fruits, with minerally citrus character and a lively fine acidity, are in perfect balance. Just love the palate." (2018 vintage)

Campbell Mattinson "Soft acidity, fluid flavour, a semblance of texture and lovely length. ...There’s a lilt to this wine, a carry. Watercress, pears and apples. It has enough to satisfy but it’s elegance personified." (2018 vintage)

Huon Hooke "Very light yellow colour. Vaguely scented aroma of fresh flowers and nettles, the palate light and straightforward, wispy and clean, simple and fairly short. A decent quaffing dry white. " (2018 vintage)

Nick Stock "Here’s a delicious Chenin blanc that shows dried apple rind, cooked pears, fresh herbs and freshly squeezed nectarines. Medium body, bright and fine acidity and a medium finish." (2018 vintage)

Campbell Mattinson "You'd call it slight and insubstantial but you'd also call it stylish. It's a paradox. Spiced apple flavours are the order of the day but the real charm springs from soft acidity." (2018 vintage)

Mike Bennie (The Wine Front) "Precise and racy style, kept in check with limey acidity and chalky phenolic grip. Actually, so much grip, rivulets of talc-and-salt-like pucker and chew. Serious structure and finesse in tow. Lime, tonic water, mixed minerals. Whoosh. Belter of a wine."

Gourmet Traveller Wine "Multiple releases of Corymbia Chenin blanc have impressed.....The wines under the Corymbia label have been outstanding."

Gourmet Traveller Wine "Corymbia is one of the most exciting wine projects to emerge from Western Australia in a decade. The combination of a distinguished winemaking family, the reinvention of a much-maligned wine region, the unlocking of the potential of a mature vineyard and a general sense of creativity, have all contributed to a strong currency.

Organic wines are made from grapes grown without pesticides, following strict organic standards. Organic wines are produced in vineyards that do not use synthetic chemicals.Certified organic wines have been certified by Australian Certified Organic Standard (ACOS).

Corymbia is the newish project of Rob and Genevieve Mann. The Mann family, of course, are generational wine producers in WA, with a history of iconic wines and vineyards. Rob, formerly working with Hardys, Cape Mentelle and Newton Vineyard in Napa Valley, has returned home and made a mark.

The family vineyard in Swan Valley is dry grown and organically farmed. While winemaking draws on the Manns’ suite of expertise and diversity of influences, it has been pared back for Corymbia, letting the fruit and character of the wines take the spotlight.

That Swan Valley has been put on a pedestal is wonderful, and a celebration of older vineyards, unique soil profile and a general sense of generational endeavour is exciting for the region. There’s an undercurrent of winemakers amplifying the region’s potential, but arguably Corymbia is the current totem."

Huon Hooke "The Mann family are winemaking royalty in Western Australia."

Corymbia is a new winery launched by one of the founding families of Western Australian wine. The Manns have grown grapes and made wine in the Swan Valley, Western Australia's oldest wine-growing region for over a century. Corymbia wines are critically acclaimed, organically-farmed, single-vineyard wines. Founder, Rob Mann is considered one of Australia's best contemporary winemakers. He was the senior winemaker at Hardy’s Tintara, and Cape Mentelle, where during his ten-year tenure the winery was twice awarded 'Australia's Producer of the Year' and Rob 'Australian Winemaker of the Year'. Prior to founding Corymbia he was Senior Winemaker at LVMH’s Newton Vineyard in the Napa Valley.

Swan Valley is a sub-region of the Swan District wine region just north of Perth, in Western Australia. The Swan District is Western Australia’s oldest wine region, having been planted by English settlers soon after their arrival in 1829. For almost 150 years it was the only significant wine-producing region in Western Australia and today it's also home to the state's largest winery. Some of Western Australia's finest wines are produced in the Swan Valley.

It is an actively multicultural area, with the descendants of early Yugoslav, Italian and English migrants continuing the region's winemaking traditions. Pioneers in the development of table wines include the legendary Jack Mann at Houghton in the 1930s and 1940s.

Chenin Blanc is a versatile white-wine grape variety that has been cultivated in France for nearly 1300 years. It is most commonly associated with France's Loire Valley, and its high acidity levels mean it can be vinified in a number of different styles: as lusciously sweet, botrytis-affected dessert wines, light, honeyed sparkling wines and as full-bodied, still white wines.

1 x Château Du Vieux Montpezat (Organic) 2016 ~ Bordeaux, France

Organic

Acclaimed owner of a St Emillion Grand Cru

Connoisseur "Forward in character and crowd-pleasing in style, with the ability to age."

Wine Enthusiast "This lightly structured wine is all fruit. Its red berry flavors are already well integrated with the smoky tannins that form its core." (2014 Vintage)

The Winemaker "Aromas of cherries, cassis, blueberries, cedar, tobacco, cocoa, pencil, pepper, laurel, oregano and violet. Fleshy, juicy, velvety on the palate, dense fruit, delicately spicy, complex, very elegant and long-lasting. Aged for 12 months in 1/3 new oak barrels." (2014 Vintage)

Roger Barlow "There are very pleasant fruity, ripe plum and spice aromas on the nose that continue on the palate. This is a delicious wine with a generous palate, fine-grained tannins, a voluptuous structure and a long finish." (2015 vintage)

70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc

Jean-Francois Meynard and Christelle Gauthier produce wine from three different Bordeaux appellations, all close to the Dordogne River; Côtes de Castillon, Saint Emilion and Entre-Deux-Mers. The most famous estate being Château L’Etoile de Clotte, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru. Both of their families have roots in the region extending back to the 19th century. Located in Saint Magne De Castillon, Château Du Vieux Montpezat is a small 10 hectare property operated on the principles of organic agriculture.

Bordeaux's Côtes de Castillon appellation is a growing area with AOC status since 1989. The approximately 3000 hectares of vineyards border Saint-Émilion and Bergerac and has similar tasting wines which are less expensive than its famous neighbours.

Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world's most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. Its three trump cards are diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90 per cent of production volume) are the dry, medium- and full-bodied red Bordeaux Blends that established its reputation. The finest (and most expensive) of these come from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines, both dry styles (particularly from Pessac-Léognan) and the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.

A Bordeaux Blend is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot. In fact, the majority of Bordeaux Blend wines are often made exclusively from a blend of these two varieties. The remaining components are Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

1 x Château La Justice (Organic) 2016 ~ Bordeaux, France

Organic

Le Devoir Newspaper "Rather proudly adorned, without ostentation,...ample enough to be savoured, but also more restrained, flirting with suppleness and liveliness."

John Hattersley "A classic Bordeaux from the best vineyards overlooking the beautiful Dordogne. Made under Michel Rolland oenologist extraordinaire's watchful eye. Generous black fruit with a hint of coffee, lots of energy and fine aromatics on the finish: it shows how once Fronsac enjoyed stature to rival Pomerol and St Emilion."

The Winemaker "Red and black fruits are very present with notes of wood and vanilla. On the palate, the wine reveals roundness and power. The finish is persistent and elegant. The Château La Justice benefits from the region's mild climate and limestone soils. It contains strong aromas of ripe raspberries, cassis and blackberries as well as hints of spices and vanilla, as well as very subtle wood notes.I t is as complex on the palate as on the nose, opens dense and concentrated, has an undeniable elegance and ends in a long, very soft finish. It is best to set aside an aromatic hard cheese, a Mediterranean vegetable dish or a strong beef steak."

100% Merlot

Chateau La Justice is owned by the same owners as the historic, well-known estate, Château de la Dauphine. Both wineries are farmed organically which is still a rare accomplishment in Bordeaux. Winemaking in managed by highly regarded oenologist Michel Rolland. Both estate's are located in the Fronsac appellation which resides in the eastern part of the famous French wine-growing region of Bordeaux. The vineyards which are located around the banks of the Dordogne produce a large number of complex wines, all of which have their very own character.

1 x Les Centenaires La Bergerie Rouge Costières de Nimes (Organic) 2018 - Rhone, France

Organic

Wine Enthusiast "Crisp blackberry and cherry notes sing in this delightfully quaffable red. It's full-bodied and briskly concentrated but zesty and thirst-quenching. The finish is tightened by a firm grip of tannins. Ready now, the wine should hold through 2024"

40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Carignan

Clos des Centenaires was founded Luc Baudet of Chateau Mas-Neuf fame, and Californian wine industry veteran, Jack Edwards who both share a passion for artisan wines and the terroir of France’s Southern Rhone.

Clos des Centenaires is a historic vineyard situated in Costieres de Nimes, close to the Mediterranean Sea. The vineyard boasts 70-year-old Grenache vines which are deeply rooted in the pebble stones overlooking the picturesque lakes of Petite Camargue. The vineyard also features Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot, and Cinsault, and is known for producing unique, high-end, elegant wines of excellent value.

The vineyard soils are cultivated amongst natural grassland using shallow tillage methods and special attention is paid to the revitalization of vines (using annually prepared biodynamic compost). Inputs are limited to organically approved natural products.

Costieres de Nimes is the most southerly appellation of the Rhone wine region in southeastern France. The wines of the area are reputed to have been consumed by the Ancient Greeks and thus figure among the oldest known wines in the world. The Costieres de Nimes AOC covers an area between the towns of Nimes and Arles.

The Rhone Valley is one of France's key wine regions and is divided neatly by a gap of about 25 miles (40km). Wines from the northern part of the valley tend to be Syrah-dominant (Hermitage and Cote Rotie being the most notable examples), while wines from the southern Rhone are more commonly blends, with Grenache playing a more dominant role. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is the most famous example of a southern Rhone blend, but similar blends are found in wines from Gigondas, Vacqueyras, and the regional Cotes du Rhone title.

Southern Rhone Red Blend refers to a wide range of grape varieties often blended together to make wines in the southern reaches of the Rhone Valley in the south of France. While the blend could theoretically consist of any of a wide range of grape varieties, it is usually made up of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, in varying proportions, typically with Grenache and Syrah as the dominant partners.

1 x Arimia Estate Mourvedre (Organic) 2014 ~ Margaret River, Western Australia

90/100 - James Halliday

Organic

James Halliday "A savoury, medium-bodied wine with red and black cherry fruits .."

Great Wine "The perfumed nose follows through to the palate which is fruit driven and opulent. Mourvedre is normally gnarly but Arimia have made a smoother style similar in flavour to a good Cotes Du Rhone but without the garrigue. Classy! Arimia makes the only single varietal Mourvedre’s in the region. They are championing new varietals for the region such as Zinfandel, Grenache, Shiraz Viognier, Petit Verdot and Verdelho."

Organic wines are made from grapes grown without pesticides, following strict organic standards. Organic wines are produced in vineyards that do not use synthetic chemicals. Australian Certified Organic.

Arimia is an award-winning organic vineyard, farm and wine producer located in the famous Margaret River region of Western Australia. The Arimia vineyard has been farmed organically since July 2016 and the winery practices a low intervention, organic method of winemaking. The vineyard is managed and the wines made by acclaimed winemaker and viticulturist Dan Stocker. Arimia has one of Margaret River's most welcoming cellar doors and boutique accommodation.

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 finest (and most expensive) of these come from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines, both dry styles (particularly from Pessac-Léognan) and the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.

A Bordeaux Blend is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot. In fact, the majority of Bordeaux Blend wines are often made exclusively from a blend of these two varieties. The remaining components are Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

Le Devoir Newspaper "Rather proudly adorned, without ostentation,...ample enough to be savoured, but also more restrained, flirting with suppleness and liveliness."

John Hattersley "A classic Bordeaux from the best vineyards overlooking the beautiful Dordogne. Made under Michel Rolland oenologist extraordinaire's watchful eye. Generous black fruit with a hint of coffee, lots of energy and fine aromatics on the finish: it shows how once Fronsac enjoyed stature to rival Pomerol and St Emilion."

The Winemaker "Red and black fruits are very present with notes of wood and vanilla. On the palate, the wine reveals roundness and power. The finish is persistent and elegant. The Château La Justice benefits from the region's mild climate and limestone soils. It contains strong aromas of ripe raspberries, cassis and blackberries as well as hints of spices and vanilla, as well as very subtle wood notes.I t is as complex on the palate as on the nose, opens dense and concentrated, has an undeniable elegance and ends in a long, very soft finish. It is best to set aside an aromatic hard cheese, a Mediterranean vegetable dish or a strong beef steak."

100% Merlot

Chateau La Justice is owned by the same owners as the historic, well-known estate, Château de la Dauphine. Both wineries are farmed organically which is still a rare accomplishment in Bordeaux. Winemaking in managed by highly regarded oenologist Michel Rolland. Both estate's are located in the Fronsac appellation which resides in the eastern part of the famous French wine-growing region of Bordeaux.

Wine Enthusiast "Crisp blackberry and cherry notes sing in this delightfully quaffable red. It's full-bodied and briskly concentrated but zesty and thirst-quenching. The finish is tightened by a firm grip of tannins. Ready now, the wine should hold through 2024"

40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Carignan

Clos des Centenaires was founded Luc Baudet of Chateau Mas-Neuf fame, and Californian wine industry veteran, Jack Edwards who both share a passion for artisan wines and the terroir of France’s Southern Rhone.

Clos des Centenaires is a historic vineyard situated in Costieres de Nimes, close to the Mediterranean Sea. The vineyard boasts 70-year-old Grenache vines which are deeply rooted in the pebble stones overlooking the picturesque lakes of Petite Camargue. The vineyard also features Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot, and Cinsault, and is known for producing unique, high-end, elegant wines of excellent value.

The vineyard soils are cultivated amongst natural grassland using shallow tillage methods and special attention is paid to the revitalization of vines (using annually prepared biodynamic compost). Inputs are limited to organically approved natural products.

Costieres de Nimes is the most southerly appellation of the Rhone wine region in southeastern France. The wines of the area are reputed to have been consumed by the Ancient Greeks and thus figure among the oldest known wines in the world. The Costieres de Nimes AOC covers an area between the towns of Nimes and Arles.

The Rhone Valley is one of France's key wine regions and is divided neatly by a gap of about 25 miles (40km). Wines from the northern part of the valley tend to be Syrah-dominant (Hermitage and Cote Rotie being the most notable examples), while wines from the southern Rhone are more commonly blends, with Grenache playing a more dominant role. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is the most famous example of a southern Rhone blend, but similar blends are found in wines from Gigondas, Vacqueyras, and the regional Cotes du Rhone title.

Southern Rhone Red Blend refers to a wide range of grape varieties often blended together to make wines in the southern reaches of the Rhone Valley in the south of France. While the blend could theoretically consist of any of a wide range of grape varieties, it is usually made up of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, in varying proportions, typically with Grenache and Syrah as the dominant partners.
