This wine is made of grapes from the blocky lateritic Rocky Road site which provides fruit with great flavour concentration and structural backbone. The Wine opens with Raspberry confection and ripe Satsuma plums at first, with nuances of cola nut, black cherries and dusty cacao underneath. A soft and fruit forward palate abounds with supple red fruits, red strap liquorice and subtle sweet spice flavours.

Vineyard management takes a back to basics approach at McHenry Hohnen embracing sustainable 'Old School' practices that were used before the rise of intense agriculture.

Country Of Origin: Australia

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. This is done by embracing a 'hands-off' winemaking philosophy, where each wine is a focussed expression of its variety, its growing season and its individual site. Viticultural 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.
