SKU: A00540 Category:


With an unwavering focus on crafting site expressive wines, McHenry Hohnen brings us this incredible Tempranillo from an old planting in the Yallingup Hills, Margaret River.

Margaret River is a known lair for Tiger snakes and in the local vernacular ‘Tiger Country’ means a tough and hard terrain. The soils that make the region’s best wines are composed of clay and ironstone pebbles, great for the vine and accommodating for the ‘Tigers’.

McHenry Hohnen farm all their vineyards sustainably, and in fact, biodynamically; nurturing the biodiversity both within the soil microbiology that surrounds the vines and the insects and animals which are attracted to the healthy crops.

Biodynamic viticulture is similar to organic farming in that both take place without chemicals, but biodynamic farming incorporates ideas about a vineyard as an ecosystem, and also takes into account astrological influences and lunar cycles.

Over time, methods and preparations create deeper topsoil, increase root mass and depth, increase carbon capture and water holding capacity of soils – thereby improving plant health and dramatically improving the plant’s resistance to pests and disease.

Natural composts and manure teas are made onsite at McHenry Hohnen, no chemicals are used and in the main, lunar cycles are observed in administering the biodynamic regimes – “A better environment gives you better wine.”

This is an incredible wine, big yet soft and supple at the same time.
Displaying rich and deep aromas of chocolate, violets, vanilla and ripe black plum with underlying sweet spice – this is a complex wine you can lose yourself in.

The palate is supple and generous whilst brimming with ripe plum, liquorice and dusty cocoa tannins. Incredible length with silky, velvety tannins on the finish, and needless to say…one of our favourite wines!
