Bordered by ocean on three sides, Margaret River nestles in the south-west spur of Western Australia. Not only a region of flawless natural beauty, it is also a place blessed with ideal soil and weather conditions for winemaking.
Both the warm, maritime climate and the gently rolling topography are perfect for viticulture, and since the 1970s Margaret River has become known for producing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals. The region is also renowned for its superior whites such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
Margaret River wines are characterised by their depth of colour and intense, full-bodied palate. This distinctiveness comes from the region’s soils, which range from gravelly loams to more sandy and highly-flavoured loams. Most of the vineyards are on the slopes of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, where roots can go deep into the ground, allowing the grape vines to survive the dry Mediterranean summers. The resulting grapes are infused with potency and flavour.
No other wine producing area in Australia is so highly influenced by its closeness to the coast, and this unique geographical asset ensures that wines from the Margaret River area are both highly prized and highly individual. It is no wonder that some of the world’s finest wine practitioners have been drawn to this region: seduced by its potential as much as by its beauty.
