This is a forward, character-filled chardonnay with a full yellow colour and toasty bouquet. It tastes rich and full, generous and smooth. It’s a traditional full-bodied chardonnay, which is already drinking at its best now, but will hold for three or four years.

A lifted bouquet of ripe white peaches and nougat with underlying wild yeast derived grilled nuts, brioche and cinnamon dusted oatmeal. A pristine palate reflects the vineyards Southern Margaret River location displaying ripe nectarine and white peach framed with fresh lemon/lime acidity. Finely textured from time spent on lees, the palate is dry and linear showing precision and poise.

The Rocky Road vineyard lies in the headwaters of the Chapman Brook, near Witchcliffe in the south of the Margaret River region. With a northerly aspect, the vines enjoy long days of sunshine, moderated by the vineyard's southern location. 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.

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.
