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.
The Wine Front – ’s a mid-weight wine, soft and fluid. It doesn’t quite have the grunt of some of the earlier releases under this label but it’s well shaped and flavoured and, most importantly, drinks well. You can rely on it. It tastes of Blackcurrant, mulberry, milk chocolate and bay leaves, with gentle toast and olive-like character evident in the background. Tannin is modest. Hard to go wrong, either for now or the medium term.
