Wines of the South West

"Margaret River is skilled at producing some of the world's best awarded wines."

Margaret River is renowned for producing premium wines, with over 100 wineries in the region. Its Mediterranean-style climate and clay loam soil ideal for growing premium wine grapes, combined with experienced winemakers and viticulture specialist, means that Margaret River is skilled at producing some of the world’s best awarded wines.

At WA Cleanskin Cellars, we build a great rapport with these wineries which allows us to bring premium wines to the local and national buyers at an extremely generous price.

Here are my favourite wines of the moment:

Margaret River Sunsets Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2013

This wine comes from one of WA's premium wine producers who recently took out the top award for white wine at the 2013 Perth Royal Wine Show. This SSB is bound to be a hit during the summer months in WA. 

Margaret River Icon Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

The winery which produces this wine has a 5 star rating by James Halliday in the 2013 Wine Companion, and is a true representation of what a Margaret River Cabernet should be. The region has really made a name for itself for producing some of the best Cabernet’s in the world and this blend is definitely up there. Rich aromas of dark berries, plums and spice with a dash of oak derived vanilla on the nose follow with a full and smooth palate and a nice integration of round fruit flavours and mellow oak.
