Margaret River, Coal River

Margaret River is the name of a river, town and key wine region. It is one of the younger viticultural regions in Australia, quickly gaining popularity for its world-class wine. Located 280km South of Perth in Western Australia, the first plantings were only made in 1967. The region has grown rapidly and is recognised as one of the great wine-producing regions of the world, with over 200 wineries in operation. Made up of predominantly boutique producers, with a number of big player wineries also, the region makes up only 3% of the Australian wine production, but commands over 20% of the premium wine market. The wineries in the region are vibrant, innovative and progressive in their approach to viticulture.

The Mediterranean style climate provides superior maritime growing conditions, with vines not affected by extreme summer and winter temperatures. The region is well known for producing outstanding red wines; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and to a lesser extent Shiraz, Tempranillo and Malbec. Both straight varietals and famous Bordeaux blends can be outstanding.

In the white wines, Chardonnays of great depth and character, and fresh Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends are the main varietals the region is famous for. Lesser quantities of Viognier, Riesling and Muscat are also produced.
The Coal River Valley wine region lies in the south of Tasmania, an easy 15 minutes drive outside of Hobart. It's the apple isle's fastest growing wine region, with almost a fifth of all Tasmanian wines grown there. The region is known for producing superior wines grown over some of the most fertile soil around.

The elements of rainfall, sunshine hours, number of rain days, temperature and overall humidity coalesce and culminate in cool climate conditions ideally suited to growing particular varietals. Predominantly in the reds, the region, as with much of Tasmania has an affinity for making top Pinot Noir however Cabernet, Merlot and some superb Shiraz have been known to emerge from the Coal River Valley too. In the whites, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc lead the charge with lesser amounts of Gewürztraminer grown there too. The dense, Pinot Noirs produced in the Coal River Valley region typically have more weight than their New Zealand counterparts with distinct savory notes not unlike the great red Burgundies. They've enamored many a visitor and will continue to do so as premium winemakers flock to the region.
