- Murray McHenry has a background in fine wine retailing, owning "Steve's Hotel Wine Shop", regarded as having the widest selection of Australian and imported wines in the whole of Australia. After branching out into wholesaling Murray planted his first vines in Margaret River in 1984 and today farms grapes at two sites in the region. The Margaret River viticultural zone is home to some of the more restrained styles of wine made in Australia, the result of cooling breezes which drift in from the Indian Ocean.
The vineyards which supply fruit to Hohnen McHenry are McHenry's, Calgardup Brook, McLeod Creek and Rocky Road, all exceptional sites from which much of the harvest is still sold to Cape Mentelle, but from which the pick of the crop is retained for their own wines.
The aim is to make very natural wines which reflect their terroir and which receive minimal intervention from the winemaking team with new oak used only sparingly.
A pungent mix of stone fruit, floral notes and savoury dark plum fruit with an earthy infusion on the bouquet which follows through to a plump fleshy fruit driven palate. Good quality fruit is in the driver's seat here.
- Grape varieties Tempranillo, Petit Verdot, Graciano
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'.
