South West Australia Wine

for this region?

The South West is a zone that encompasses the best known growing regions of the Western Australia state. Since most of the state is too hot for viticulture, this is the area where conditions become more temperate due to coastal influences and most of the quality wine-making is clustered, starting just south of Perth.

The regions within South West are:

    * Pemberton
    * Margaret River
    * Blackwood River Valley
    * Geographe
    * Peel
    * Perth Hills
    * Swan District

For more information about the individual districts and varietals, please see Western Australia.

  • Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2010

    Snoothrank:

    AUD$36. The fruit for this wine come off vineyards in the northern end of the Margaret River region, to within 8km of the coastline so it is strongly influenced by the offshore winds. The soil composition is mostly gravel loam. Individual parcels of fruit were fermented on skinds for up to 30 days. Clear, intense purple ruby colour. An attractiv... Read More

  • Vasse Felix Chardonnay Margaret River 2012

    Snoothrank:

    AUD$22. Fruit was harvested and fermented as individual parcels with wild yeasts. Pressed juice was matured in French oak barrels for 9 months. Clear pale yellow with a green tinge. Youthful aromas of white peach, apple, lemon and grapefruit, slight note of struck match and clove. It doesnt have that weighty creamy impression, so Id guess minima... Read More

  • Leeuwin Estate Riesling Margaret River Art Series 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very heavy petrol on the nose with kaffir lime leaf. Subtle spice on the palate with loads of slate minerality. Rather like a mouthful of rocks and not enough fruit for me, to balance it. Not my style.79 pts.5/18/13 Read More

  • Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay 2008

    No oak aromas on the nose, all fresh fruit. Nose of golden pear skin, peach and white nectarine. Full bodied and vibrant on the palate with flavors of pear, nectarine and peach. Nice pure fruit flavors. Subtle sweet spice and nuts. Nice wine. 92 pts.5/18/13 Read More
