Region

Margaret River is Western Australia`s premier and fashionable vineyard region. Situated along the coast three hours south of Perth, this picturesque region is exposed to the effects of the Indian Ocean currents. Margaret River is renowned for producing Australia`s premier cool climate wines. Ultra chic and trendy, most producers are, small and boutique with an emphasis on high quality, the region is famed for classy examples of classic Bordeaux varietals. A region already established as one of Australia`s finest, but still young in global terms, there is still much potential to be unleashed.

Producer

The Hamelin Bay winery is located at Karridale in the southern point of the region within a few miles of the ocean. The 63 acre `Five Ashes Vineyard` is located on well drained gravel soils and faces north across the valley to gain the sun`s warmth in this cool region. The wines themselves are an expression of the natural beauty and uniqueness of the area, the fruit ripens with an intensity of flavour and richness of character. Owned by the Drake-Brockman family, who have a long association with the area, they have in recent years, achieved great recognition and awards for their range of outstanding wines.
Tasting Notes
Margaret River is renowned for producing some of Australia`s most elegant and refined red wines. This Bordeaux influenced dry red has oodles of style and class. Deep red in colour with a pink red hue. The bouquet is complex and varietal display of dusty, earthy blackberry and mocha. The palate is full bodied, rich and long with excellent sweetness and structure, fine but firm tannins.
Food
Enjoy with roast turkey or mushroom risotto.
