McHenry & Hohnen BDX 2017

A Malbec dominant blend with Cabernet Sauvignon providing structure and Petit Verdot adding lift, this wine bursts with aromas of dark cherries and crushed violets. Sweetened spices and mulberries are complemented by more savoury notes of cedar and mocha. The palate is voluminous and soft with a ripe frame of fine tannins giving length to this deliciously fragrant wine. The tannins are silky and long, and persist for eons. Subtle cocoa oak provides the perfect accompaniment. A floral and delicious wine.

62% malbec, 23% cabernet sauvignon, 15% petit verdot.

100% Hazel’s Vineyard - certified biodynamic in 2020. Our southernmost vineyard characterised by coarse ironstone gravel loam soil, Southern Ocean breezes, a northerly aspect and plenty of Margaret River sunshine.

The majority of the fruit was destemmed but not crushed into concrete fermenters to retain whole berries and achieve a highly perfumed wine. Extraction was gentle and each batch spent about two to three weeks on skins. Post fermentation, each parcel was gently pressed to French oak barriques of which 20% was new. Wines were matured for 16-months before being blended and bottled in Spring 2021.
