James Halliday – Beauty in a bottle? Right here, folks. So youthful, divine and on song. Pristine mulberry and blackberry flavours mingle with cedary oak spice and dark chocolate as wafts of violets and charcuterie flutter in and out, so too menthol and a hint of green walnut. The fuller-bodied palate is shored up with firmish tannins but given its structure, this is a few years away from looking its finest. - Jane Faulkner
About This Wine
Lifted blackberries, mulberry, plums, earth and dark chocolate dominate the nose and palate at this early stage.
Margaret River Wine
In the southwest of Western Australia, the Margaret River wine region is unique in that it is the most maritime-influenced region in all of Australia. The cool Indian ocean breezes come in through the summer to keep the temperatures around the vines steady resulting in an unusually even accumulation of warmth in the growing season. It is also quite dry as interestingly less than 20% of the annual rainfall occurs as the grapes are growing. The region’s climatic factors have been compared to what Bordeaux would be like in a dry season. While the region’s total production is relatively small (3% of Australia’s total wine production), it is responsible for 20% of our premium wine market.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz as well as Bordeaux blends are all very popular red wine options in the region.
For whites, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age worthy Chardonnays are the specialties.
