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

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion – 2016 Edition

2013 Margaret River Shiraz – 88 Points
“Light, clear crimson; a light to medium-bodied fresh and juicy wine with red fruits dominant and some black cherry nuances; no obvious oak. Drink tonight and be happy stuff. Well priced.”

China Wine & Spirits Awards 2015

2014 Margaret River Shiraz – Gold Medal

China Wine & Spirits Awards 2014

2013 Margaret River Shiraz – Double Gold Medal

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion

✪ 2010 Shiraz – 91 Points
“Light, clear crimson; from several vineyards in the Great Southern region, it has aromas of red and black cherries, licorice and multi-spice that flow on to the light- to medium-bodied palate; a deceptive wine, because the length of the palate and the lingering flavours on the aftertaste come as a pleasant surprise. Great value.”
