McHenry Hohnen Rolling Stone 2018


The very serious 2018 Margaret River Bordeaux blend focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, and unsurprisingly for the year delivers powerful aromas of just-ripe blackcurrant, graphite, dried herbs and granite with a strong backing of French oak. It then jumps out of the blocks with lashings of blackberry, blackcurrant and violets, before tightening up to a long, strong well defined finish with exceptional tannins that are significant yet fine – a real feature. Don’t be tempted for at least another decade.
