THIS MONTH'S FEATURE WINES
Michael Hartley's Top Pick
In-house Winter Specials
2016 McHenry Hohnen AMIGOS White
Nuances of preserved Meyer lemons and camomile tea dominate the nose together with ripe yellow peaches. Aromas of apricot and potpourri, typical of Marsanne leap from the glass with Roussanne adding delicate mineral notes.
On the palate the lovely texture of the Marsanne is complemented by the leaner character of the Roussanne providing a refreshing, saline acidity. Finishing nutty and long, this wine is our take on a Rhone Valley classic.
Glass $12 | Bottle $45 | TA Bottle $20

2016 McHenry Hohnen Hazels Vineyard Chardonnay
Stone fruit and lifted apricot blossom give way to a seductively flinty nose.Textural citrus acidity is intensified by the characteristic vineyard note of orange zest. The north facing gravel slopes, and southern locality of this vineyard ensure that this wine is both powerful in fruit concentration, and restrained by balanced acidity.

2016 McHenry Hohnen Burnside Vineyard Chardonnay
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.
