MCHENRY HOHNEN TIGER COUNTRY 2014

Wine Region: Margaret River, Australia

Grape: Tempranillo

Tasting Notes

Aromas of cherry cola, sarsaparilla and ripe black plum abound. Underlying sweet spice and savoury peanut husk notes complete the complex bouquet.
A supple palate brimming with ripe plum and sweet cola nut fruit gives way to red strap liquorice and dusty cocoa tannins. Grown in Tiger Snake Country this wine is one to sink your teeth into....or should that be fangs?!

Ratings

James Halliday 94 pts - “A 61/24/15% blend of tempranillo, petit verdot and graciano from three estate vineyards, separately vinified, cold soaked with partial wild yeast ferment of 85% destemmed/15% whole bunches, foot-stomped, hand-plunged, basket-pressed, matured for 14 months in French oak (10% new). Bright crimson; the bouquet is super-fragrant, with predominantly red cherry and some blueberry fruits, the palate upping the game with purple (plum), licorice and strongly textured tannins. Unusual wine. ”

About the Winery

The first vineyards in Margaret River were planted in the undulating landscape created by the water courses of the ridge that connects Cape Leeuwin in the south and Cape Naturaliste in the north.
