“The vineyard sits on this deep red soil and is farmed biodynamically so you when you farm biodynamically you get less fruit but greater intensity. We find on that vineyard that despite the cooler climate we have a really long ripening season so we find this Cabernet gets great flavor, great tannin and great colour”

Tasting Notes

Unfined, unfiltered and fermented with natural wild yeast; this Cabernet is a pure, yet vigorous expression of the terroir from McHenry Hohnen’s home block - Hazels Vineyard.

Aromas of dark fruits and candied mint coupled with a palate of cassis, plum and sweet black tea are enclosed by silky tannins and fine French oak. An inherent trust in terroir and grape quality has resulted in a regionally expressive Cabernet Sauvignon.

“Estate grown in the coolest, southern part of Margaret River, the stone fermenter has 15% whole bunch inclusion, with partial wild yeast, five weeks on skins. Matured in old, inert oak, interlocking cassis/blackcurrant fruit, black olive and earthy tannins drawing out the finish. ”

95 Points Ray Jordan , The West Australian Wine Guide 2015

“Immensely powerful and concentrated cabernet from this excellent vineyard. It works a slightly minerally and leafy edge into the intense blackcurrant and slightly black olive nuances on the nose. On the palate it delivers in spades with such power that holds its lines to a very long finish. Grainy but ripe tannins and beautif ... ul oak work in harmony. Show more Show less
