McHenry Hohnen Vintners is a venture between pioneer Margaret River winemaker David Hohnen and his brother-in-law and vine-grower, Murray McHenry. All the grapes are sourced from family owned vineyards in the southern part of the Margaret River region. The McHenry Hohnen intention is to shape wines with verve and vitality. Vinicultural practices embrace old-school holistic farming philosophies and biodynamic practices which cultivate an environment where the soil and its organisms, along with plants, insects and animals, co-exist in a thriving equilibrium.
The nose reveals red licorice over more complex earthy notes of dark chocolate, terracotta and fragrant black pepper. The supple palate shows juicy red fruits framed by licorice and ground sweet spices. Beautifully balanced with fine grained tannins with a long and velvety finish.
Try with mildly spiced, slow cooked mutton curry.
