McHenry Hohnen, Rolling Stone, Margaret River, 2013
Score: 95 Points, Joint Top Scoring Wine
Showing a little more evolution in terms of colour in the glass, and on the nose, this is a full-bodied, rich and ripe style with plenty of concentration for further ageing. Still youthful on the palate, there are intense flavours of damson and bitter cherry fruits, complemented by nicely integrated oak, firm tannins and layers of flavour. Drinking Window 2020 – 2030
McHenry Hohnen, Rolling Stone, Margaret River, 2014
Score: 92 Points
Powerful, quite pungent and dominated by dark-fruit characters: there is no shortage of intent here. Fleshy, quite showy on the palate, but with refined glossy oak and fine-grained tannins. A serious wine with the depth and concentration to age very well. A classic Margaret River example, well worth buying and laying down for several years. Drinking Window 2022 – 2030
