for this region?

Named after and centred on the town of Pemberton, this richly timbered region was first planted experimentally in 1977, with commercial vineyards following in 1982, and enjoyed rapid growth in the 1990s. The region is situated in the lower south-west of Western Australia; west of the Great Southern and south-east of the Margaret River regions. Except for the months of December to March, Pemberton has a marginally warmer growing season climate than does neighbouring Manjimup, which may seem somewhat surprising but is confirmation that Manjimup has a more continental climate in that it warms and cools more quickly than does Pemberton. The result is that Pemberton not only has a higher heat degree day summation, though only by 5 HDD, and more sunshine hours (1623 to 1535), but it also has a heavier rainfall and greater relative humidity. The mean annual range of Pemberton is also lower, 8.55ºC (45.68ºF) as opposed to 9.7ºC (49.46ºF) for Manjimup, simply because Pemberton is nearer the sea. In other words Read more »

  • Xavier Flouret Shiraz Pemberton Waroo 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Showing early notes of reduction on the nose. Takes some time to blow off, but once it does there are attractive notes of plummy fruit, prune and vanilla. Light hints of peppercorn and game might be the remnants of reduction. In the mouth, this is rather lovely, light and fresh, with friendly red and blue fruits. Showing admirable purity. This w...

  • Xavier Flouret Shiraz Pemberton Waroo 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky earthiness, bold, jammy deep dark fruits in the palate, bright pepper fruits smooth and enjoyable with food. I had several different Australian Shiraz tonight and for my group, this one was our favorite! Read More

  • Xavier Flouret Shiraz Pemberton Waroo 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of blackberry fruit and chili powder. Nice oakiness on the back end of the aroma. Attack is hot and packs good tannins. Slight jamminess on the finish, not sweet. It's an exciting wine, containing the usual pepperiness of Shiraz complemented with really solid fruit. Read More

    Wine review by sdaly01


  • One of Australia's great wine regions, although still emerging. Will take time to reveal its full potential, being a cooler region where the better made wines take longer to mature. Pemberton wines tend to be more refined than most other Australian wine regions, with lovely fragrance and particularly fine tannins.
