Palate Profile

From acclaimed winemaker David Hohnen, who co-founded Cape Mentelle in Margaret River in 1970 and founder Murray McHenry

"Halliday Wine Companion - Australian Winery of the Year 2022 & 2023"

Complex and very satisfying, this is a charming Southern Margaret River Chardonnay.

On the nose delicate notes of jasmine, Ginger spice and nectarine leap from the glass, complemented by complex barrel ferment elements of cashews and struck match. The palate is delicate, medium bodied and refreshing with a mealy texture and salty acidity. A true reflection of place and season, this Chardonnay pays homage to our farming and winemaking philosophy.


Critic Awards

This is a blend of three vineyards – Burnside, Calgardup Brook and Hazel’s. Crisp with a saline minerality. There are faint hints of butterscotch and meal merging in there too. Then the palate is so beautifully controlled with its linear structure and fine savouriness on the finish. Excellent wine.

This has aromas of white apricots, grapefruit, saltines and nutmeg. Fresh and elegant with a medium body and bright acidity. Refreshing sea breeze character to the fresh fruit and biscuit elements.

The 2021 Laterite Hills Chardonnay, made purely from the Gin Gin clone, is a superb introduction to the McHenry Hohnen style. Bright fruit forward & pristine, it opens up with impressive melon, grapefruit and lemon pith fruits with oak couched in behind. It’s then deliciously supple, with crisp acidity and an attractive hint of gunflint finish.
