More Information

Tagging themselves as ‘Sustainable Farmers’ the approach was to treat their vineyards organically from the beginning. Certification came later, but for the Sustainable Farmers it was the only way. McHenry Hohnen wines are certified organic, with all fruit from the Hazel vineyard being farmed biodynamically, with certification from 2019. 

The Calgardup Brook Vineyard lies just inland from the coast. Its sandy, schisty soils are well weathered. These chardonnay vines run east-west with a slightly sloping northern aspect. Hand harvested with no additions of yeast, acid, yeast nutrient etc. 25% new French Oak, remainder two and three year old French Oak. Light bentonite fining only.

"All 3 single-vineyard chardonnays are made in the same manner: hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild ferment in barrel (25% new) with full solids, partial mlf. This is perhaps my favourite (by a whisker) of these 2 single-vineyard chardonnays. It has a bitter phenolic kick through the finish that adds a layer of sparkle, interest and excitement to the wine and creates a salty undulation through the finish. It moves in a dappled way, this wine. I like it." 96pts - Erin Larkin - Wine Companion
