For Australia Day, we revisit this amazing continent and one of its finest wine gems -- Margaret River. As Australia emerges from its post-critter wine era, the country is in need of a reset. If ever there was a region to rejigger people's perception of Aussie wine, this is it. 

Australia Day

Here's the link: MARGARET RIVER

  • We first talk about Western Australia -- its size, location, and the other wine regions here.
  • We focus in on Margaret River, the area that makes 3% of Australia's wine and 20% of its premium wine. 
  • Margaret River was founded purely as a science project, and it's worked out pretty well. We hit on climate, terroir, soil, and the most successful grapes.

After you hear our description of the flavor profiles of these wines, you're going to want to run out to get some! And you should. It's great stuff. 

Enjoy and happy Australia Day!
