Description

McHenry Hohnen Burnside Vineyard Chardonnay

McHenry Hohnen Burnside Vineyard Chardonnay is a powerhouse from the first lifted note. Cashew, roasted hazelnuts and white peach flesh exist in abundance on the nose. The palate grows and grows from start to finish. The wine is a product of 40 year dry grown vines, and this is beautifully evident in the concentration and vibrancy of the palate. Generous in both flavour and acidity, the uniqueness of this wine captures the sites personality perfectly.

Located close to the coast with views of the Indian Ocean, the name Burnside has its origins in Ireland where it means one who lives by a burn or stream.

Eleven hectares have been planted on a number of aspects, as dictated by the contours of the rivers bend.

It has proven to be an exceptional vineyard, the growing site of their flagship Single Vineyard Chardonnay.

Founded in 2004, McHenry Hohnen was a family venture for Brothers-in-law Murray McHenry and David Hohnen. With Murray being an accomplished fine wine retailer and David a Margaret River winemaking pioneer, their experience in making wine in the area dates back to the early 70’s. With the adoption of biodynamic and organic farming techniques, McHenry Hohnen creates wines that have a pure reflection of the land.

Since its inception, McHenry Hohnen has had an unwavering focus on crafting site expressive wines. As their vines age and the soils continue to evolve, they see the individuality and beauty of the land continually developing in our wines.

To preserve the many benefits of the sustainable, chemical free environment created in their vineyards with biodynamic and organic farming methods, a focus on minimalist intervention in the winery is paramount. Wild yeast, minimal sulphur, no filtration, large format oak and concrete fermenters all have integral roles in allowing the seamless transition from sustainably grown fruit to site reflection wines.

McHenry Hohnen’s vineyards are managed using 100% biodynamic methods which are designed to improve the vitality and health of the soil.

Biodynamic is similar to organic farming in that both take place without chemicals, but biodynamic farming incorporates ideas about a vineyard as an ecosystem, and also accounting for things such as astrological influences and lunar cycles.

Over time, methods and preparations create deeper topsoil, increase root mass and depth, increase carbon capture and water holding capacity of soils – thereby improving plant health and dramatically improving the plant’s resistance to pests and disease.

McHenry Hohnen’s vineyard manager Mike Sleegers is an experienced advocate of biodynamic farming and believes its the only way to grow the best quality grapes.

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.
