• McHenry Hohnen in Margaret River… Memories from our travels!

    In Keeping with this theme here’s a short piece on Harriet and Anthony’s trip to Margaret River last March, the wines they tried and the craic they had. Anthony does a World Trip annually taking in Chile, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. I (Harriet) was lucky enough to join him for the NZ/OZ leg of the trip. As with all  these trips you need some down time… we took a 2 day break from the wine-tasting marathon and swam with sharks (well I paddled!) in the surf spots (see above) around the points of Margaret River.

  • At least the Aussies will never take themselves too seriously!

    Just been handed the latest in a string of articles about LarryCherubino’s Wines. No hint of ‘spice’ or ‘succulent tannins’ mentioned in these awards!  This time an off the wall ode to all things Aussie. Bottom right under the wine that took the title ‘For Services to wine porn’ you’ll see our own AdHoc winning ‘Services to truth in wine labelling’ for their ‘Shiraz from the middle of everywhere’. They’ve obviously got some good ground there too though, cos it’s fairly delicious…

  • Aussies excel on the wine front after Ashes foray!

    To celebrate Australia Day yesterday I rummaged through the rack and found a bottle of Wise Wine’s Sea Urchin Shiraz 2008 DELICIOUS! Pity I couldn’t say the same about my dry bit of crusty pizza (which no amount of extras from the cupboard could improve). Notes of violet, blackcurrent and hints of peppery spice came through, but most of all it was refreshing that this wine tasted pure. No hint of too much human interference just the grapes doing their bit in the bottle. Why can’t more Aussie wines be like this.

I also plan to oversee the blending of more Puna Snipe in Chile,the possibility of launching our own blended brands in both East and West Australia,and meeting some of the worlds most innovative winemakers and producers there,and finally overseeing the new Swallows Tale blends and Reservas in South Africa,and probably improving the wines and adding
