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.

  • Leeuwin Estate Riesling Margaret River Art Series 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is herbal and a little stinky right out of the bottle though with time it picks up sweet grapefruit aromas with a hints of apricot and passion fruit adding complexity. A bit loosely knit on entry, this is easy drinking and transparent but lacks both depth of flavor and complexity. The finish is a bit short as well. 84pts Read More

  • Plantagenet Riesling Great Southern 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A touch heavy on the nose with an underlay of dried herb tones and some apple blossom fruit. Spritzy on entry, this has enough acidity to keep it balanced. It does lack some height in the mouth and is rather languid on the palate, with a soft richness to the lemon cream and key lime pie flavors. The finish shows a nice edge of minerality that li...

  • Howard Park Shiraz Margaret River Leston 2008

    Snoothrank:

    These Western Oz products are deliciously European (read: Rhone Valley) with a dollop of Australian cheek. After twisting off the screw-cap closure, and anxiously awaiting the dissipation of the oak, the nose of this wine is reminiscent of cola bottle jelly candy and cherry preserve. There is some sneeze-like pepper on entry, with silky, light t... Read More

  • Flametree Frankland River Shiraz 2010

    Snoothrank:

    $30 direct from winery. Fruit was from two vineyards. Rhone strains of yeast were used for fermentation, and maturation was in used and new French oak barrels. Intense ruby colour that clings to the glass. Lifted youthful aromas of freshly cracked peppercorns, savoury plum, cherry liquor and a hint of dried herbs. There is almost a sweet concent...

  • Vasse Felix Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very pale yellow straw colour. Fermented with wild yeats and maturedfor 9 months in French oak barrels. Youthful spritzy aromas of white peach, honey melon and hint of buttered cashews. A dry, med+ bodied wine with plenty of acidity but that is partially hidden by the rounded feel on the palate. 12.5% alc. Flavours of white peach, squeeze of lem... Read More

  • Voyager Estate Red Blend Margaret River Cabernet-Merlot Girt By Sea 2010

    Snoothrank:

    AUD$20. Intense ruby colour, with an expressive nose of pencil shavings, blackcurrants, milk chocolate with dark berries and a faint touch of eucalypt. A dry, med+ bodied wine with moderate tannins that are slightly sappy. High level of cleansing acidity, 13.8% alc. Matured in a mix of American and French oak barrels. Flavours of blackcurrants, ...

  • Xanadu Winery Rathbone Wine Group Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This Margaret River Chard was clearly barrel fermented (as stated) judging by the obvious yeast and fine oak on the nose. On entry, the acidity remains prominent, clean and full of appeal; the barrel-fermented nature of the flavor profile is pleasant and the wine is very satisfying on a Spring evening. Elegant and modern, I do not hesitate to ... Read More
