Margaret River

Margaret River Carr

Roughly 100km's long and 27km's wide consisting of unique microclimates where no two bottles of wine are the same.

In less than 50 years, Margaret River has transformed from a region known by few, into the powerhouse of premium Australian wines known worldwide. This extraordinary achievement is manifest in the fact that while the region accounts for only 3% of the national wine production, it produces 20% of Australia's premium wines.

The most prominently crushed varietal in the region is Cabernet Sauvignon with Shiraz and Merlot following behind. Margaret River red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon are typically elegant, medium bodied, fine in fruit character and have the potential to age superbly.

Growing conditions in Margaret River may have some Mediterranean-like characteristics but the closest old world comparison is Bordeaux. The region enjoys everyday warmth that's tamed by the cooling winds from the Indian and Southern Oceans.

Owing to these cooling maritime influences, Margaret River enjoys the lowest mean temperature range and the most even warmth throughout the growing season. Rainfall is also crucial to the region's success. With a Mediterranean-like annual downpour, Margaret River is twice as fortunate.
