McHenry Hohnen Tiger Country 2004

McHenry Hohnen Tiger Country 2004 This is a venture by David Hohnen and Murray McHenry.  Murry is an ex wine retailer, David was the winemaker at Cape Mentelle for many years.  David also has an organic pig farm from what I hear; the guy must have some Spanish heritage to grow Tempranillo and raise pigs for a living!

Deep red in the glass. A nice nose of red currents, dark chocolate, raspberry and spice. Medium bodied and savory in the mouth with dark berries, earth, and a touch of black tea and soy.  Ripe tannins on the finish.  I like the balance on this wine, very interesting in the mouth as well.  Not your typical Aussie red blend, very European in fact. I'm not sure how it would age, I'd drink it over the next couple of years. 88 Pts.

  1. I love this wine. Shows a whole different side to Margaret River. I think also as a wine, the following vintages are just going to get better and better. It is in the old world mould, but has this distinct Margaret River minerals running through the whole palate.

  2. I tend to think Cabernet and Chards when I think about Marget River, but there seems to be a heap of temranillo going in over there.

    You could really see this was from MR..
