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 »
