Description

One of Margaret River’s founding five estates, Cape Mentelle was established in 1970 by regional pioneer David Hohnen and his brothers Mark and Giles. In 1983 Cape Mentelle won Australia’s most coveted wine award, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Award for its Cabernet Sauvignon and cemented its position as a premium producer when it won it again the following year. This was huge, not just for Cape Mentell, but also for the youthful Margaret River wine region.

Today Cape Mentelle forms part of the LVMH group (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) and its wines remain some of the region’s most critically acclaimed. James Halliday says they are, “knocking on the door of the Winery of the Year Award.” Environmental sustainability is a key driver within the vineyards and winery and Cape Mentelle was WA’s first member into Australian wine sustainability program, Entwined. To achieve this certification the vineyard utilises the most natural viticulture techniques.

The Wines
The critically-acclaimed wine range is focused around Margaret River’s signature varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (and blends), Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Chardonnay. An historic Zinfandel is made too, from vines planted in 1974 which were brought out directly from California to the Cape Mentelle Vineyard.

Located just five minutes towards the coast from Margaret River town, guests can enjoy tasting experiences starting from $10. A Behind the Scenes Tour and Behind the Scenes Tour with Food and Wine Pairing Experience run on weekdays, offering the unique opportunity to explore behind the winery walls of one of the region’s most famous estates.

Nostalgia enthusiasts will love the photo collection lining the barrel hall behind the cellar door.

The whole family can enjoy picnic facilities, dedicated activities areas for children and estate’s petanque courts. Similar to bocce, this game originated in 1907 in Provence, Southern France. The courts are free to use, boules can be borrowed from the cellar door.

Since 1982 Cape Mentelle has hosted the region’s most renowned Cabernet event. The Cape Mentelle International Cabernet Tasting is a blind tasting that features a selection of Cabernets from the world’s finest cabernet producing regions; Bordeaux, Napa Valley, Tuscany and Margaret River. Tickets sell quickly to industry and media, but every year a few lucky members of the public can come along to this amazing event too. Visit Cape Mentelle’s website for details.

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!

Owner and winemaker Robert Gheradi was born with wine in his blood, spending his Summers growing up picking grapes in the Swan Valley and Margaret River with his extended Italian family to make into wine at his Nonna’s house.

The centuries-old winemaking traditions of Barolo influenced the ancient winemaking techniques utilised within Mr Barval's production. The wines are fermented with only natural yeasts and basket-pressed grapes to provide the most sensitive juice extraction to make handcrafted wines of balance, elegance and purity. The fruit comes from ultra-high quality grapes throughout Margaret River.

The Wines

The Mr Barval range includes Chardonnay, Rose and Cabernet Merlot. There’s also  an early harvest style Nebbiolo called ‘Nebbia’ and Rhone-inspired white, ‘Mistral’ made from Viognier and Marsanne. Wines can be purchased online or at various stockists throughout WA.

Description

The story behind the name of this Margaret River pioneer dates back 100 years. It’s alleged that prior to the vines, the site was a dairy farm, whose ‘prominent red gate’ was known locally as the place to buy (illegal) home-distilled spirits. Incidentally, the property is nearby to Redgate Beach, so founder Bill Ullinger thought the name to be fitting on all fronts!

The vineyard was established in 1977, with 20 acres of vines planted. Over time, the family owned estate has grown into a 55 acre vineyard, operating its own winery, cellar door and maintaining an enviable reputation for its boutique, premium wines.

The Wines
Since the early vintages of the 1980s, Redgate’s handcrafted wines have received countless awards. In addition to its regional Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnays, Redgate makes Rose, Sparkling and a series of three luscious dessert wines, including a rare fortified Shiraz named in honour of founder, Bill.
