Vying for the position of Australia’s most beautiful wine region would have to be Western Australia’s Margaret River. Set on pristine coastline, this relatively new region produces incredible Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends and beautifully elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Joining Margaret River in Western Australia’s south-western corner are Geographe, Blackwood Valley, Pemberton, Manjimup and Great Southern. By far the biggest region, Great Southern is incredibly varied with maritime coastal regions and continental inland climates included. Reflecting this diversity in terroir is the variety of styles, from Riesling to Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir to Shiraz. Moving further north past Perth is Western Australia’s oldest region, the Swan District where the warm, dry climate is perfect for Chenin Blanc and Shiraz, while the neighbouring Perth Hills, with its cooler nights, is home to boutique producers whose Shiraz Viognier and Chardonnay shine.
