Three Perfect Natural Elements for Viticulture
The Margaret River Wine Region is positioned in the south-west corner of Australia. It stretches 100 kilometres from north to south and is positioned on a cape that is surrounded by ocean on three sides.
Margaret River is renowned for its isolation, ancient terrain and remarkable coastline. The Mediterranean climate, gravel loam soils and maritime influence, together, deliver ideal conditions for premium viticulture, particularly for Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Margaret River wines are known for their consistency, elegance and pronounced varietal aroma and flavour. The region is responsible for 1.6% of Australia's total Chardonnay production and 3.1% of Australia's total Cabernet production (2012 vintage). Although the region contributes only 3% of Australia's wine grapes, Margaret River commands over 20% of it's premium wine market. (Source: The Margaret River Wine Industry Association)
