Description

Amato Vino are small-batch artisan winemakers based in the Margaret River wine region, Western Australia.

 

The winemaking philosophy is ‘lo-fi’, in that we embrace wild-ferments, minimal adjustments in the winery, gentle handling. Wines are typically unfined and unfiltered. We are hands-on in terms of the grunt work, the care and guidance, but with a hands off approach to the science of winemaking, using little or no inputs and employing traditional processes. An old-school approach yet with a modern flare for creativity and adventure.

 

Established in 2003 by owner/winemaker Brad Wehr, the labels and wine styles have continued to grow, covering traditional Margaret River varietals through to some eclectic and unusual grape varieties and winemaking methods.

 

Our winery is located a few minutes south-west of the Margaret River township. We work with a core group of independent growers who share our philosophy, employing organic and sustainable farming practices.

 

Our wines

AMATO VINO ‘wilds’

 The ‘wilds’ are home to our emerging Mediterranean varieties, micro-batches, skinsy ferments and other eclectic wines. Featuring single vineyards, hand-picks, natural ferments – and incorporating minimal winemaking input and unconventional vessels for fermentation/maturation – this is the wild stuff.

 

Packaged under labels bearing in-house artworks/designs/photography the ‘wilds’ include Teroldego, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Primitivo, Marsanne, Trousseau, Savagnin.

 

AMATO VINO ‘mantra’

The ‘mantra’ series is all about the classic Margies grape varieties, albeit with the Amato Vino lo-fi twist. The emphasis is on vineyard site & fruit purity, working with small fruit parcels to bring out the best from the each site. Wild ferments (open and barrel), no adds, no fining and filtration are all central to the mix.

 

Wines include a Barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

AMATO VINO ‘fusa’

‘Fusa’… the home for our blends (foo-za). Utilising emerging/alternative varieties as the basis for the blends we’re seeking to create juicy, fresh drinkability, yet complex and alluring wines – packed with flavour but oh-so light on their feet. The Bianco and Rosso are fruit-forward, fleshy and flavoursome versions of some of our favourite grape 

varieties and are made for short to mid-term drinking.

 

Private winery tours/tasting are available by appointment, please contact [email protected] for more info

Blue Poles vineyard aims to emulate these traits in its vineyard and wines.

The vineyard is a joint venture between two geologists, Mark Gifford and Tim Markwell, who committed to their business plan from a minesite donga in 2001. They inspected thousands of kilometres of land before settling on the property 15 kilometres east of the Margaret River township for its large pockets of iron-rich gravels over clay, slopes to the south-west and cool climate for the long ripening of fruit.

The wine range includes a Cabernet Franc, Viognier, Shiraz and Italian varieties; Fiano and Teroldego.

The Mair family has a keen interest in the unique biodiversity values present on Grace Farm. Floristic and avian fauna surveys have been carried out and monitoring of populations is ongoing. 

The farmhouse was designed according to solar passive design principles and supports a roof-top solar array which feeds excess power back into the electricity grid, helping to reduce the property’s carbon footprint.

The award-winning range includes a barrel-matured Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Burgundian style Chardonnay and two quintessential Margaret River style Cabernets.

Wine Tastings

Private tastings can be booked. They are held on the deck of the farmhouse in the company of viticulturist Tim Quinlan and include the opportunity to sample all wines while enjoying views over the vineyard and valley.

Description

McHenry Honen is the fusion of an accomplished fine-wine retailer, Murray McHenry, with one of Margaret River’s most respected pioneers David Hohnen (founder of Cape Mentelle).

Their aim is to make the most site expressive wines they can from their three distinct family vineyards in Margaret River, all of which are 100% biodynamic. Biodynamics revolves around an environmental equilibrium. It is similar to organic farming, in that both preclude the use of chemicals, however biodynamic farming incorporates ideas about a vineyard as an ecosystem, and also accounts for astrological influences and lunar cycles.

The Wines
There is an unwavering focus on making distinct, site expressive wines and on embracing the individual characters that come from the different plots in the vineyards. This is achieved through minimal-intervention using wild yeasts, minimal sulphur, no filtration and large format oak and concrete fermenters. The range includes Margaret River’s specialty varieties and a few unexpected surprises. More than five single-site Chardonnays showcase just how different the flavours of this variety can be because of different site influences in the vineyard.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door is conveniently located on Caves Road, just five minutes from Margaret River town. The wines can be tasted between 10.30 and 4.30pm daily.

Unique Highlights
Don’t leave without some of David Hohnen’s smoked cold meats, sausages and traditionally made smallgoods from side venture, The Farm House Margaret River. These are sold from the McHenry Hohnen Cellar Door. David works with farmers around the region on this venture and his meats have a great reputation, especially with many of the local winemakers to enjoy with their friends and wines!

Brad and Sarah Mitchell, the husband and wife team behind The Alchemists were originally metallurgists. They realised they could combine their love of chemistry, compound formulas and fine wines in the sacred science of transforming the humble grape into a divine elixir.

Brad and Sarah Michel purchased their vineyard in 2007 and after a few years experimenting, released their first serious vintage in 2010, making Rose, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Each of those wines won awards in various wine shows around the country, which gave the pair great confidence to keep the alchemy going.

The Alchemists and Twin Cellars have Cellar door in the Swan Valley at The Taphouse Mulberry on Swan.

The Wines
The Alchemists utilise both traditional and modern winemaking to make their wines, which are grown on their estate vineyard.
