Cabernet is King in Margaret River! Margaret River has a Mediterranean climate, similar to that of Bordeaux, with cooling sea breezes perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Considered to be the flagship wine of the region, Cabernet Sauvignon is often blended with Merlot. Margaret River's Cabernets often have blackcurrant, earthy and spicy character and are medium to full-bodied wines with firm, structured tannins. Pair with lamb, beef, darker game meats, braised red meat dishes or firm cheeses.
