- In addition to its stunning natural beauty, Margaret River is home to some of the country's most exceptional quality wines. From regional flagships of chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon to innovative blends and styles, the region's maritime climate allows for the production of excellence in so many different varieties. For your introduction to some of Margaret River's best, try the following four wines.
2017 Domaine Naturaliste Morus Cabernet Sauvignon
Violets, cassis and a distinctive character of mulberry perfumes and flavours – a very unique character of the Margaret River region. The Morus is best enjoyed when decanted between 15-16 degrees celcius with any good cut of red meat or a brooding, strong cheese.
RRP $89 | 2032 | domainenaturaliste.com.au
2017 Victory Point Chardonnay
Peach, pear and apple on the nose, with oak-derived aromas of brioche, nougat and smoky vanilla. The palate is both lithe and concentrated with mouth-watering citrus, mineral, cinnamon pear, white stone fruit and some toffee notes with a great persistence of flavour and length.
RRP $45 | 2025 | victorypointwines.com.au
2017 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon
This distinctive style possesses all the hallmarks Margaret River cabernet: elegance, generosity and ageability. A juicy, vibrant wine with structure and incredible length – decant before drinking and serve with charcuterie and hard cheeses or enjoy on its own.
RRP $47 | 2041 | vassefelix.com.au
2017 Cullen Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
Delightful aromas of fresh cut grass, spicy and vanilla oak aromas supported by tropical notes. Vibrant fruit lifted by citrus nuances on the palate, with lovely stone fruit nuances and toasty characteristics. This wine is perfect when paired with fresh blue manna crab caught on the beach at Busselton.
RRP $31.50 | 2036 | cullenwines.com.au
