McHenry Hohnen’s authentic and expressive single vineyard wines are a result of biological viticulture and minimal handling during the winemaking process. Talented winemaker Julian Grounds, from the city of Albany in the Great Southern, graduated Viticulture and Oenology and worked for a founding family of the Oregon wine region. Previously the Senior Winemaker at Giant Steps, he has helped shape some of Australia’s most acclaimed single vineyard wines. Sustainability and site expression is imperative for making quality wines, as per Julian.
Hazel's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon showcases a dark ruby hue with magenta tinges. Lively scents of Japanese plums, mint leaf confection and blackcurrant intermix with sweet mocha and savoury black olive notes to offer a luxurious bouquet. The luscious palate packs supple flavours of cassis and sugared plums combined with undertones of sweet black tea and cola. These great characters are supported by balanced acidity and silky tannins, ending the wine in a long finale. This tempting Cabernet Sauvignon from McHenry Hohnen Vintners tastes excellent with foods like roasted duck breast, Asian BBQ lamb ribs and Swiss Gruyere cheese.
