Region

Margaret River

Our home. Girt by sea and rolling hills, Margeret River drew us across the land in search of wines with purity of fruit character, elegance and substance. A stunningly diverse region, we chose the central Wilyabrup district for our vineyard as it is here that the most complex yet balanced wines are produced. Our vines stand proudly nestled amongst some of the biggest names in wine, producing stunning fruit for the Stonefish Varietal series wines. We can’t wait to see you at the Stonefish Margaret River Cellar Door soon.

History

The Margaret River is a wine region in the southwest corner of Western Australia, known to the locals as ‘The Cape Region’. Its vineyards produce internationally acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs and other varietals. While the region produces less than 3 percent of Australia’s wine, it accounts for more than a fifth of its premium wine.

The Margaret River was scientifically identified by Dr John Gladstone (UCLA) in 1969 as being the most perfect area in the world to grow premium wine grapes. The first plantings were established in 1967/68 and now accounts for 1.5% of the national production and 23% of Australia’s premium bottled wine market in sale.

Yielding

The region is very low yielding and the vintage each year will vary between 2 and a half tonnes to the acre and 4 tonnes depending on variety and fruit requirements.

Fruit costs in the region are significantly higher than in other parts of Australia due to low yielding vines.

Flavour concentration is distinctly evident when tasting wines from the region.

Awards

CWSA Best Value 2015

2013 Chardonnay – Gold Medal

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion – 2015 Edition

✪ 2013 Margaret River Chardonnay – 89 Points
“Attractive mix of grapefruit and pear-like fruit with just-enough spicy oak to give it a completeness. Crisp and clean. Slightly bitter on the finish but not necessarily lesser for it. Clear sense of regional/varietal identity. Great value.”

China Wines & Spirits Awards – 2014

2012 Chardonnay – Gold Medal

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion – 2014 Edition

✪ 2012 Margaret River Chardonnay – 89 Points
“Bright, light straw-green; a smooth and supple Margaret River Chardonnay, with all the attention on the stone fruit, melon and fig fruit, citrus appearing as part of the acidity on the finish. Well priced.“

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion – 2013 Edition

✪ 2011 Chardonnay – 90 Points
“The light, vivid crystal-green colour of itself suggests the wine has not been barrel-fermented or otherwise been exposed to oak, and the palate confirms this. It’s at the riper end of the spectrum, with peach, nectarine and pear to the fore, and its generosity means there is no need to wait.”
