video review: wine of the week

26th July 2009

McHenry Hohnen 3 Amigos White 2006, Australia

David Hohnen is the legendary figure who founded Cape Mentelle winery in Margaret River in 1976, before going on to establish Cloudy Bay in Marlborough in 1985. Today, he and brother-in-law Murray McHenry run McHenry Honhen, along with David's daughter Freya. This unusual blend of Marsanne, Chardonnay and Rousanne is fermented in barrel using only wild yeasts. It has a lovely nose with some cream and vanilla, dried apricot and sultana fruit and a powerful palate with juicy orange and excellent balancing acidity. £11.99, Bablake Wines, Anne et Vin, Hennings, ND John, St Austell Brewery, Edward Sheldon, Planet of the Grapes, Handford Wines, Everywine.co.uk.
