McHenry Hohnen Vintners is a family owned wine producer sourcing grapes from three vineyards owned within the families of David Hohnen and his brother-in-law Murray McHenry.Winemaking is handled by Ryan Walsh, partner of David's daughter Freya. The McH intention is to shape wines with personality. They do this by embracing a philosophy of minimal intervention winemaking, where each wine is a focussed expression of its variety, its growing season and its individual site. Within the three vineyards, fourteen varieties are cultivated. These reflect the region's heritage with the Bordeaux varieties (semillon, sauvignon blanc, malbec, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot). They also acknowledge the Mediterranean climate of Margaret River with varieties associated with southern France and Spain (marsanne, roussanne, grenache, mataro, shiraz, tempranillo). Chardonnay and zinfandel complete the foundations from which fruit is selected for the McHenry Hohnen range of wines.Viticultural practices embrace holistic farming philosophies, cultivating a system in which the soil and its organisms, along with plants, insects and animals, co-exist in a thriving equilibrium.
