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.

“Machine-harvested, fermented in French oak (40% new), matured for 6 months. Despite its modest alcohol, its mouthfeel and taste are at the big end of Margaret River, a sure hit for those who say they want chardonnay like it used to be.”
