Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon: Traditional, Sustainable and Organic Practices
June 14, 2022 @ 10:00 - 11:00
With dramatic coastline, signature clones and ambitious, premium-focused producers, Western Australia has a reputation for beautifully balanced wines with intense fruit and elegant acidity.
Although the first modern vineyards only took root in the 1960s, the Margaret River region is something of a prodigy, achieving early success, prestige and international acclaim for its Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay in particular.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the hero variety for many in Margaret River. The wines show an astonishing balance of fruit ripeness, acidity and defined tannin structure, and are suited to long-term cellaring.
Meet viticulturists and a winemaker from three pioneering Margaret River wineries and find out why Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in this region. Hear about the region’s traditional, sustainable and organic practices from Glenn Goodall (Xanadu Wines), Bart Molony (Vasse Felix) and Alex Miller (Voyager Estate).
Xanadu Wines, Vasse Felix and Voyager Estate are members of Sustainable Winegrowing Australia, committed to championing global sustainability credentials. Glenn, Bart and Alex will talk about the sustainable practices across their vineyards and wineries, as well as others in the region, which include implementing biodiversity, smarter irrigation, and reducing emissions.
