Margaret River needs little introduction to lovers of fine Australian wine. Blessed with an almost perfect maritime climate, the prevailing Indian Ocean breezes temper the heat of summer, allowing grapes to ripen perfectly, with excellent natural acidity and full flavour spectrums. The effect of these ocean breezes on night time temperatures is particularly significant in the development of grape flavour and quality.
Covering an area around 90km north to south, and 45km west to east, the region is made up of five sub-regions, each with slightly differing attributes in terms of ripening periods, and acid and flavour profiles.
The ancient soils are made up of gravel loam over clay – ideal for vine health and the growth of concentrated, intensely flavoured berries.
Margaret River is also a region of spectacular natural beauty and has become a popular tourist destination.
