Winery Ashbrook Estate
Region: Margaret River
The Margaret River region of Australia is one of the country's primary wine producing regions, being responsible for producing up to and around twenty percent of the country's wines. The excellent terroirs of this south-westerly region, coupled with the brisk oceanic breezes and superb levels of balanced humidity result in healthy grapevines, offering high yields of consistent high quality. Indeed, the climate of Margaret River has been often compared to that of Bordeaux in France, something which bodes very well for vintners operating in the region. Both red and white wine grape varietals are grown widely throughout Margaret River, with the cooler areas of the region offering superb SÃ©millon and Sauvignon Blanc varietals, and the warmer parts of the region producing the ever popular Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes which Australia is best known for.
Despite much of Australia being covered by dry, arid deserts and bushland, the southern regions of the country and islands such as Tasmania have proved to be ideal for vineyard cultivation and wine production. The fertile soils and brisk oceanic breezes, coupled with the blazing Australian sunshine allow the grapes to grow to full ripeness before a late harvest, resulting in hugely flavorful wines which appeal to a wide international audience. Combine this with the experimental and daring approach Australian wineries have in regards to wine production, and it becomes clear why Australia has relatively quickly become something of a world leader when it come to exporting their produce to Europe and America. The Shiraz and Chardonnay grape varietals have produced the most successful and broadly appreciated results over the decades, however, in more recent years wineries have begun experimenting with a much wider range of grape varietals, demonstrating how Australian wineries are continuing to adapt and develop alongside international palates.
